Note: A child with diabetes may need to check his/her blood sugar during the day to find out about his/her blood sugar level. The parents will show you the method they use and give you guidelines about when to notify them. Children usually are able to do their own blood glucose testing.

/¡\REMEMBER: The care of diabetes is a team effort involving you, your physician, and the diabetes education staff where you receive your medical care. This handbook cannot-and was not meant to-replace this team effort.

This handbook embodies the approach of the diabetes care team at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. Different diabetes care teams may approach some aspects of diabetes care in ways that differ from those in this handbook. While most teams are in close agreement regarding the GENERAL PRINCIPLES of diabetes care, they may differ in the DETAILS. There can be more that one "right" way to approach a specific issue in diabetes management.

Always remain in touch with your diabetes care team, and bring any questions you may have about the materials in this handbook to their attention!
