From a nurse in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA:

What advice do you have for an active 8 year old boy (Type 1 diagnosed four years ago) who is going through a growth spurt and has blood sugars out of control? He is attending our university for an enrichment program and we see him every day in our health services office.


Obviously, he needs a consultation with the diabetes team. He may need a new schedule for insulin. Certainly, he needs more insulin if the sugars are constantly high, but when and how much is beyond we can supply by e-mail.

Encourage this consultation.
