Diabetes

Students who have been diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes require special management of their health care needs at school. This allows them to be ready to learn and have access to equal educational opportunities as their peers. It ensures that students with diabetes are safe at school. In the long-term, research shows that intensive management of diabetes helps to decrease the complications of the disease.
