Legalizing Diabetes Care at School

New Diabetes Care Law Helps Kids in Texas Schools

School personnel will now be trained to identify the signs of high and low blood sugar and in steps they can take to prevent serious complications including glucagon injections, insulin administration, hydration, etc... And, students who are capable enough to check their own blood glucose and treat their lows can now carry their life saving supplies with them!!! Brilliant idea. I think that makes a total of 11 States with similar legislation.
