My Child Has Diabetes

Many parents whose child is diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes wonder: 'Why is this happening to my child?' 'How can they continue to live as before?' 'How can I best help?' Often it seems there are more questions than answers at the beginning.

One of the most important things to parents is the health and well being of their children. For a child with Type 1 diabetes, the aim of diabetes therapy is to reduce the risk of developing long-term complications caused by high glucose levels, avoiding hypoglycaemia and ensuring normal growth and development both physically and emotionally.

Helped her daughter say YES TO LIFE with her pump in 2013

Ankita was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2009 when she was 9 years old. She was hospitalised for 10 days and was on medication and insulin injections ever since. We were very sad and worried about her. Her blood sugar was still up and down and we were under a lot of stress to make sure she was fine. She has been using the pump for 2 months now and we can already tell the difference. The burden of injections is gone. We are stress-free and do not need to worry about her. All we have to do is give her our full support. As parents it is our job to make sure she is healthy and safe and after diabetes, it’s even more important that we are there for her. Thankfully, the insulin pump makes it a lot easier for us. It has made her a happier person and even her height has improved. I think she is flying in the air now!
