More details from petition creator

Children with Type 1 Diabetes, who are of a young age and in Primary School are unable to look after their own condition. They are not able to check their own blood glucose levels, or administer their own insulin doses either by pen or through an insulin pump. These young children are unable to recognise/understand when their blood sugar levels are low or high. Therefore it is imperative that they have adult supervision to help them do regular blood glucose testing. Without this support, if their blood sugar drops too low they are at risk of going into a coma. If left untreated it could prove fatal. Diabetic children need an adult to help support them. Without this care, they are being put at a great disadvantage Please provide funding for our children Please do not exclude them unnecessarily from school Please enable them to experience school life, to enjoy it and be safe Please don’t allow our children’s health & well being to be jeopardised Please give us your support!
