I bet that is one of the scariest things a parent will do with their child and diabetes. A lot of trust and faith comes in for sure. That was a great list of things, and specially at the bottom where you need to make aware a person to speak to on your behalf to Medtronic if you are over 18. I would have never thought about that.

I hesitated about posting this since at first it appears to be geared to people using an insulin pump but I think many of the tips can apply to other PWDs as well. I was lucky enough not to have diabetes when I was in school which is a stressful enough time on its own.
