[IP] Number of diabetic kids in school

Growing up, I was also a minority in school. As of late I have noticed a great
rise in diabetes in the news, especially for elders on Medicare. Even as I sit
here and type this message there is a commercial on TV for a Type II medicine.
I believe one of the reasons for more children with type I DM in schools is
the population increase. Living in rural western ME finds me to be 1 of only a
few pampers. In fact the nearest endo specialist is roughly 85 miles. All
children with DM I need to be encouraged to take care of themselves at the
same time, they also need to be reminded that they can do most everything that
non-diabetic kids can do!
