As an independent nonprofit organization, PADRE is dedicated to serving the community through its free diabetes self-care and SUPPORT programs.

New Uc Davis Camp Serves Kids With Type 1 Diabetes | The Sacramento Bee

New Uc Davis Camp Serves Kids With Type 1 Diabetes | The Sacramento Bee

New UC Davis camp serves kids with Type 1 diabetes | The Sacramento Bee New UC Davis camp serves kids with Type 1 diabetes During most summer weeks, more than 300 campers are running around UC Davis in bright yellow T-shirts and a few layers of sunscreen for one of the universitys many recreational youth programs. This week, 15 more are forming a league of their own through the campuss first-ever diabetes camp. The UC Davis Recreation and Unions Department and the UC Davis Childrens Hospital co-organized the camp, which aims to teach kids ages 6-12 with Type 1 diabetes how to manage their blood sugar levels while maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. During the five-day session, the small group follows the same schedule as the other camps and participates in everything from tie-dye to rock climbing, all while keeping a close eye on the glucometer. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that prevents the pancreas from producing a hormone called insulin, which converts glucose from carbohydrates into usable energy and manages the bodys blood sugar. Only about 5 percent of people diagnosed with diabetes have this form of the disease, according to the American Diabetes Association. At camp T1D as the campers colloquially call their group physical activity, nutritional intake and blood sugar levels exist in a carefully balanced trifecta which, if knocked off-kilter, can result in a medical emergency. For that reason, the camps staff includes two registered nurses, two counselors, a dietitian and a physician to keep close tabs on campers health. Some of the staff are from the UC Davis Childrens Hospital, where the campers are all patients. Help us deliver journalism that makes a difference in our community. Our journalism takes a lot of time, effort, and hard work to Continue reading >>
