Knowing the Signs
I think I have these symptoms! What should I do?
I’m newly diagnosed – now what?
Get proper training: Upon diagnosis, ask your healthcare professional for training. Many Children’s Hospitals offer training or search for diabetes training in your local area. You will feel more confident if you know how to properly count carbs, put together healthy meals and calculate insulin.
Get connected: Often when first diagnosed you and your family and caregivers will feel like you are on an island. I promise you, we are not alone. 30 million people in the U.S. have diabetes (combined type 1 and type2) – that’s almost 10% of the population! Google your local JDRF for type 1 (jdrf.org) and ADA (for info on type 1 and type 2 at diabetes.org) and attend a local meeting. Make some new connections, and get some dia-buddies.
