Diabetes Self-Management Blog

School will soon be back in session, which means that colleges nationwide will be welcoming new freshman into their ranks.

Along with all the typical questions of someone just starting college, students with Type 1 diabetes will have a unique set of concerns. If you or your child is wondering how to manage diabetes while away at school, then you’ll want to read a recent post on the Web site of Texas Children’s Hospital. Written by a student at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth who has Type 1, the piece gives tips on matters ranging from how to store diabetes supplies in your dorm room to ways to meet other students with diabetes.

When you’re done with that, check out “Helpful Tips for Incoming College Freshman,” by Maryam Elarbi, for more useful advice. And to all of the soon-to-be freshman out there, best of luck in college!
