This review found that children with type 1 diabetes are able to provide self-care when they develop the cognitive skills to understand how to control their condition, along with social and emotional development to be able to cope within the social environment. It is shown that when care-givers and children monitor the condition closely, better ...

Subsequent to PA, there were 40% fewer IDCs (p=0.008) and 59% fewer GDCs (p=0.003), amounting to a 49 ...
