Guidance for Children and Young People of Key Workers with Type 1 Diabetes
25 Mar 2020
We thought this might help with thoughts around how to manage young people with Type 1 Diabetes through this crisis. Dr Fiona Campbell has clarified this for us tonight.
This is such a tough time for all families but the guidance for Children and Young People of key workers with Type 1 Diabetes is that they can go to school as long as there are staff who can assist them with their diabetes appropriately and safely.
This is the Government recommendation as they are not in the “shielding “ category.
They must abide by all the other rules and try to keep their glucose in range too.
Hope this helps and let’s all stay at home where possible and let’s keep washing our hands.
Stay safe and below is an update to support this information from ISPAD:
