Who administers insulin to your child in the child care setting (day care, camps, before-/after-school care)?

Poll dates: April 3 - 10, 2013
Total Votes: 56

With the widespread use of insulin pumps and multiple daily injection therapy among kids with type 1 diabetes, young kids who attend day care, before or after school programs, or camps need to take insulin while away from their parents. We asked our readers to tell us who administers insulin in these situations and found that well over half -- 64% -- report that their child self-administers. About one in ten parents to to the care setting and administer insulin themselves.
