Managing type 1 diabetes at school is important for children’s short- and long-term health. Blood sugars that are too high or too low can affect a child’s ability to learn. Blood sugar levels can change quickly, so it’s important that school staff are educated, equipped and available to support students.

At a minimum, all students have to check their blood sugar throughout the day. If their blood sugar is too low (hypoglycemia), they need to treat it by eating a fast-acting sugar. Many students will also take insulin during the school day, when they eat or to correct a high blood sugar. They’ll do this either by injection or through an insulin pump that they wear on their body. Some students also wear a device to monitor their blood sugar. (Caring for Kids)
