Hi Melinds, i completely agree with Pin Cushion. I have had Type 1 since i was a baby so I went through the school thing. In Elementary school my parents went in and talked to every single teacher, nurse, principal, secretary, anyone i would have contact with at school. They told them everything to know about diabetes, especially about low and high sugars. Once i got in to high school i did it myself. I only ever had one teacher in all those years that didn't listen, needless to say i had a low sugar reaction and had to go to the hospital! That never happened again! I think that knowledge is the most important thing.
