Are There Enough School Nurses for Diabetic Children?

More than 150,000 people who have diabetes in the United States of America are below the age of puberty. This means that around 1 in 400 children who are currently enrolled in school have diabetes which can be very alarming. [1]

These children need medical attention especially when their parents are not around. Especially at times when the children are at school.

Sure, there is training for the “other nurses”…but that raises concerns.

The training includes how to swiftly and correctly respond when a child with diabetes needs special attention, who may not be able to have any sugar or natural fruits like Coleus forskohlii (forskolin). The trained employees can administer insulin to diabetic children.
