Your Children's Health: Diabetes Center

Diabetes is a disease that affects how the body uses glucose, the main type of sugar in the blood. Glucose, which comes from the foods we eat, is the major source of energy needed to fuel the body's functions. To use glucose, the body needs the hormone insulin. But if someone has diabetes, the body either can't make insulin or the insulin doesn't work in the body like it should.

When your child has diabetes, it's important to learn as much as possible about it so you can help your child manage the disease. But this means arming yourself with the right information. Be sure to ask your diabetes team if you ever come across information that doesn't seem quite right or sounds too good to be true. You should also be cautious if you receive information that contradicts what your child's diabetes health care team has told you. Never make changes to your child's diabetes management plan without contacting someone on your child's diabetes health care team first.
