From Needles, California, USA:

I just got diabetes two years ago, and it has been really hard. I'm only 12. Do you have any tips on how I can maintain my sugar?


You are right. Diabetes is really hard. Try not to let it get you down! Have you ever been to diabetes camp? Talk to your parents or diabetes doctor or nurse about finding out where the nearest camp is. Ask to meet other kids with diabetes. Learn as much as you can about diabetes, and enjoy yourself.
