Hi all, We are new to the forum and my DS(8) was dx'ed with Type 1 on March 30th. We are still working out the kinks with school and he is in a very strong honeymoon at the moment so his BG's are all over the place while we constantly adjust his insulin and add in snacks, etc. My question is: does your child check themselves in class or do they go to the nurse? Currently my DS is going to the nurse but he is usually in there at least 2x/day. I was thinking it would help if he could check himself in the classroom and treat as needed so he's not missing all that class time. Obviously, he would still go the nurse at lunchtime for a check and his insulin shot. He currently is independent with his checks but not his injections. My other question is what kind of meter and lancet does your child use in class if that is the case? I bought him a one touch ultra mini and then I was going to try the multiclix lancet since he won't have a sharps container in class. Does anyone have experience with these? We currently use a one touch ultra meter at home so we have the strips etc. He also currently uses the Delica pen but has to deal with the sharps with that one. Any info anyone has would be appreciated. Even though we are so newly diagnosed and I don't understand the terminology in a lot of the posts this forum has been great as we try to learn more. Thanks!
