Challenge

Type 1 diabetes cannot be prevented and has no cure; The diagnosis is sudden, so immediately, it should be started with attention in the areas of diabetes education, nutrition and psychology. In most hospitals and clinics in the health sector in Mexico, this type of care is neither provided nor supplies for self-monitoring of glucose, increasing the risk of acute (hyper and hypoglycemic) and chronic complications (kidney damage, glaucoma, cardiovascular damage, and neuropathies)

Solution

Providing children and adolescents, as well as their primary caregivers, diabetes education to acquire tools and skills necessary for the daily management of their disease, as well as monthly follow-up consultations in nutrition to adjust the eating plan, and psychology for their emotional health. Providing monthly blood glucose monitoring supplies necessary to adjust carbohydrate intake and detect acute complications (hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia)

Long-Term Impact

Empowering children and adolescents with correct knowledge for the management and control of their condition, reducing the risk of suffering acute and chronic complications that affect their quality of life
