    we know someone. I can empathize with the added worry your friend must be feeling.

    www.jdrf.ca is a really great resource and touching base with their local office may help answer some preliminary questions/concerns they may have.

    they have advocacy and a position statement on diabetes management in schools

    The Winnipeg office that covers the "Prairie" region is

    1101-191 Lombard Avenue
    Winnipeg, MB R3B 0X1
    Tel: 204.953.4477

    Hey Gaylene,

    My son is 22 but was 10 when he was diagnosed so I know exactly how she feels - it is the feeling of uncertainty and not having the power of control to make sure that he/she is ok in class.

    As I said my son is now 22 and I still worry when he is at work or out with friends.
