I have recently gotten into watching Law and Order: SVU. The episode last night involved a missing boy who had Type 1 diabetes. I actually thought they did a pretty accurate job of depicting it. The one thing that jumped out at me, because it doesn't exist yet, is that in this episode, the boy's pump could text the parents if he had a high blood sugar! Don't we all wish we had that technology? I know it will eventually come with the artificial pancreas but it was interesting how they incorporated it.
The boy had a pump, the parents were worried about high blood sugars as his pump only held 3 days worth of insulin, and the person who had him was just shoving food at him to try and pacify him and they kept harping on that not being the solution. When the found the boy, he was lethargic and the detectives immediately asked for insulin. I thought all in all it was a pretty accurate depiction of the disease.
