Fred’s tips for managing diabetes daily
However, as a foundation dedicated exclusively to the well-being of families since 1974, we know that it is essential to :
1 – Don’t isolate yourself. Listening and sharing make it easier to approach the challenges encountered daily and allow for a more serene supervision of the child who will adopt a more positive attitude towards his or her diabetes.
2 – Establish a care routine to facilitate their integration into daily life.
3 – Increase opportunities to meet other families and youth facing similar challenges.
4 – Promote and encourage youth autonomy and control over their diabetes.
5 – Establish a healthy diet for the family.
6 – Adopt a proactive attitude to facilitate the understanding of the youth’s condition by his or her peers, for example through an explanation session at school.
