Never Blame Diabetes on AnythingElissa Renouf
Never blame diabetes on anything.
People with Type 1 diabetes are still able to play sport, go to birthday parties, and eat whatever they want just as any other person does – just a little special consideration is needed from time to time. Remember – never hold your child back from anything you don’t think they will be able to handle, as children are often a lot smarter than we give them credit for. Having three – nearly 4 – teenage boys, sport plays a great part in their lifestyle the boys all have insulin pumps and play a range of sports like football, rugby, tennis and cricket. I have always instilled in my children to never use their diabetes as an excuse for anything. They are now quite independent and capable of knowing when to test and give insulin.
