School and Daycare from 2009

  1. The school doesn't want my son checking his blood sugar in class but, with the outbreak of flu, I am concerned about all the viruses now in her office. What do you suggest we do? (8 Nov 2009)
  2. Can NPH insulin make a child become tired and weak in knees even though his blood sugar is 200 mg/dl [11.1 mmol/L]? (6 Oct 2009)
  3. My daughter is going on a week long school trip. The attending first aid person isn't familiar with diabetes. What do you suggest? (26 Sep 2009)
  4. I am a school nurse and have an incoming kindergartner on a pump. An LVN will be at the school when I am not there. What kind of nursing assistance should this student have? (31 Aug 2009)
  5. My son attends a private Christian school. Is he covered by any laws? (27 Aug 2009)

  7. Does anyone know where I can find an article regarding how the presence of a diabetes school plan affected the child's final glycohemoglobin? (7 Jun 2009)
  8. When my son goes to all day kindergarten in September, who will be responsible for counting his carbohydrates at lunch? (10 May 2009)
  9. My son's school wants a doctor's note each time he is absent. Is there something that says a parental note is okay if the absence is diabetes related? (21 Apr 2009)
  10. The school nurse doesn't approve of in-class blood sugar testing. Do I have the right to insist my daughter be allowed to test her blood sugar in the classroom? (13 Apr 2009)
  11. My son's 504 was put in place on March 31, 2008 so the school wants me to conduct a meeting to renew it since one year is nearing. How should I proceed? (14 Mar 2009)
