Navigating Independence With Your Child Living With Type 1 Diabetes
(Recorded May 2018)

Parenthood can be challenging, especially if your child is living with type 1 diabetes. Dr. Sanjukta Basak will advise you how to support your child with diabetes as they grow and become more independent.

Key takeaways:

  • Sleepovers: It can be useful to conduct a trial run with a family member or friend. Being nearby and available to step in (if needed) can help put the primary caregiver’s mind at ease
  • Babysitter: Everyone deserves a break or the ability to have a “night out”. Providing a babysitter or alternate caregiver with specific instructions is key. Sharing video resources, for example, how to administer insulin, can also be helpful.
  • At school: It is important to develop, and review with your child’s school, an Individualized Care Plan (ICP) that lays out the roles and responsibilities of each individual involved in your child’s diabetes management in the school setting
