A site that teaches kids about their diabetes in terms they understand:Kids learn about diabetes:"Here you can find out about diabetes in terms you can understand, not Doctorese. While all of the material has been cleared by a real doctor who specializes in working with children who have diabetes, it was written and tested by kids - some who have diabetes, just like you. Most people do not find out they have diabetes until they are older. This is because the symptoms do not show early in their lives. These symptoms can include increased thirst and hunger, frequent peeing, blurred vision, losing weight, feeling weak and tired, being sick to your stomach, and being nasty to people. Anyone who has some or many of these symptoms should see a doctor as soon as possible."

PRECURSORS TO DIABETES FOUND IN OBESE US CHILDREN:Hospitolmanagment.net:"This week, the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) released a statement highlighting the findings of a Yale School of Medicine research team indicating that the prevalence of obesity and glucose intolerance is dramatically increasing among US children.The study found that among 55 obese children tested (age 4 to 10 years) 25% were glucose intolerant. Among 112 obese adolescents (age 11 to 18 years), 21% had impaired glucose tolerance and four had undiagnosed Type II diabetes. Many of the child participants in the study with glucose intolerance were also insulin resistant."

Kids' diabetes crisis treatment can be fatal:WCAnews.com:"A common treatment for children in diabetic crisis apparently contributes to a rare -- but often fatal -- complication known as cerebral edema, according to a study by researchers at University of California-Davis School of Medicine and Medical Center. The study, the largest and most statistically rigorous examination yet of risk factors for cerebral edema in children with diabetic ketoacidosis, was published in the Jan. 25, 2001 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine."

Do you know about diabetes:KidsHealth:"Maybe there's a kid you know who always drinks diet soda. Maybe it's the kid who had to come down off the mound to eat a snack during a baseball game. And maybe that same kid is the one who goes home after school sometimes, saying he has to check his blood sugar before he can meet you at the mall. If you have a friend or a classmate like this or this kid sounds just like you, you're not alone. There are 100,000 kids in America who do stuff like this every day because they have a disease called insulin-dependent diabetes (say: dye-uh-bee-tees). It's also sometimes called Type 1 diabetes or juvenile insulin-dependent diabetes."
http://www.kidshealth.org/kid/health_problems/gland/diabetes.html

A site for kids and parents of kids with chronic illness:Joan Fleitas, Ed.D., R.N.:"Welcome! This is a site about growing up with medical problems ...any ole type. Its goal is to help people understand what it's like, from the perspective of the children and teens who are doing just that. These kids have become experts at coping with problems that most of you have never heard of. They'd like you to know how they do it, and they hope that you'll be glad you came to visit. I've divided the contents into three ponds; one for kids, one for teens, and one for adults."

The interactive story about Matthew a diabetic-very informative in simple words:diabetes.com:"When the family met with Amy, the dietitian, Matthew had so many questions: "Yes, Matthew", she answered, "you will be able to continue eating most of your favorite foods. Special food can be adapted to fit into most meal plans". Matthew felt relieved. He just loved mom's apple pie. Amy started by asking Matthew and his family what they usually ate at mealtime and for snacks. She quickly noted that the family was already eating well-balanced meals so Matthew's meal plan would not have to be very different from what the family were presently eating. Since Matthew receives insulin injections twice a day, food intake has to be consistent in order to maintain good control"

The American Diabetes Association brings your kids the Youth Zone:American Diabetes Association:"Inside you'll find all kinds of great suff to help you stay in control of your diabetes. You'll also find fun games, tips, links and and interactive forum where you can post questions to other kids who have diabetes"

Enter Jared's kindom a comprehensive view of his life with diabetes:Jared:"The best tip that we've discovered is powdered Gatorade. We mix up 8 oz. to carry with us, and then carry a small amount of the powder. You can usually find water to mix more if needed and don't have to carry all that extra weight of the water. Sometimes we mix it double strength (instead of mixing 3/4 of a scoop to 8 oz. of water, we mix 11/2 scoops to 8 oz. of water) . That way Jared only has to drink 1/2 of the container (4 oz.), to treat a low, we don't have to carry around as much, and he prefers the taste!"

You are all my heroes and I admire all you do every day to keep yourselves healthy and strong."
http://members.aol.com/CamelsRFun/index.html

Wide assortment of diabetic books centering around kids from baby to teen.:Jean Betschart Roemer:"Excellent resources for kids with diabetes, their parents, and adults, written by award winning author and diabetes educator Jean Betschart Roemer, C.R.N.P, C.D.E "With your child's diagnosis of diabetes, you might be feeling grief, sadness, or fear. Everything you need to learn to take care of your child's diabetes, in addition to normal parenting issues, can seem overwhelming. You might even worry that you may do something wrong to harm your child."
