Managing the unpredictable blood glucose levels and fear of complications, often results in emotional instability for families. Children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes need multiple insulin injections and blood glucose tests every day to stay alive. Unlike other chronic illnesses, children with diabetes and parents are left alone to adjust each insulin dosage several times a day, calculate the food and exercise to cope with swings of blood glucose.
