Highlights From Our Diabetes Prevention Poster Competition

Highlights From Our Diabetes Prevention Poster Competition

Home Blog Posts Highlights from our Diabetes Prevention Poster Competition Highlights from our Diabetes Prevention Poster Competition Organized by Arogya World in partnership with HRIDAY , and with support from Salesworth India Pvt. Ltd., three hundred school children participated in a week-long city-wide poster-making competition in selected schools throughout New Delhi on the dual occasion of Childrens Day and World Diabetes Day (WDD) on November 14th, 2011. The theme for WDD was Diabetes Education and Prevention, and so the children were given the following theme for inspiration: Diabetes Can and Must be Prevented with Exercise and Healthy Eating. All of the children received certificates of participation, and the winners also were given small cash prizes. Young children can grasp issues quickly and use art to convey clear and concise messages like the role of a healthy diet and physical activity in diabetes prevention. By involving children in such competitions, we can reach a much larger audience as the children take the message home and tell their friends and family about it. said Shalini Bassi, Head, Programmes, HRIDAY. Were delighted to present the winners here, and offer our thanks and congratulations to all of the participants for their imagination and creativity. We wish you the best in your academic endeavors and a lifetime of good health! Continue reading >>

Managing Type 1 Diabetes In School: Recommendations For Policy And Practice

Managing Type 1 Diabetes In School: Recommendations For Policy And Practice

Managing type 1 diabetes in school: Recommendations for policy and practice We are experimenting with display styles that make it easier to read articles in PMC. The ePub format uses eBook readers, which have several "ease of reading" features already built in. The ePub format is best viewed in the iBooks reader. You may notice problems with the display of certain parts of an article in other eReaders. Generating an ePub file may take a long time, please be patient. Managing type 1 diabetes in school: Recommendations for policy and practice Sarah E Lawrence, MD, Elizabeth A Cummings, MD, [...], and Daniel L Metzger, MD Diabetes requiring insulin is increasingly common and likely to impact students in most, if not all, schools. Diabetes and its complications have major personal, social and economic impact, and improved diabetes control reduces the risk of both short- and long-term complications. Evidence shows that more intensive management of diabetes through frequent blood glucose monitoring, insulin administration with injections and/or insulin pumps, and careful attention to diet and exercise leads to better control. Since children spend 30 to 35 hours per week at school, effectively managing their diabetes while there is integral to their short- and long-term health. The Canadian Paediatric Society and the Canadian Pediatric Endocrine Group recommend that minimum standards for supervision and care be established across Canada to support children and youth with type 1 diabetes in schools. These recommendations are derived from evidence-based clinical practice guidelines, with input from diabetes care providers from across Canada, and are consistent with the Canadian Diabetes Associations Guidelines for the Care of Students Living with Diabetes at School.

How To Teach ... Diabetes

How To Teach ... Diabetes

Do you know the difference between the two types of diabetes? Here’s a quick refresher: type 1 is where your body destroys the cells that make insulin, which means that your glucose levels increase, potentially damaging your organs. It can develop at any time, but is often discovered in childhood and requires daily doses of insulin. Type 2, on the other hand, means that your body doesn’t produce enough insulin, or doesn’t react to it. Symptoms can be controlled with diet, exercise and monitoring blood glucose levels. It is linked to obesity and usually develops in later life; it also accounts for 90% of all UK cases. The disease is at once complex, common (it affects 4 million people in the UK) and scary – prevalence rates are rising and about half of cases are thought to be undiagnosed. So how can you discuss it with your students? Primary This video, from Diabetes UK, uses simple, child-friendly language to explain what type 1 diabetes is and how it affects the body. An extreme zoom takes viewers inside a person with diabetes: there we meet talking cells and flying insulin and glucose, detailing how treatment works and how to handle a diagnosis. The charity has a huge number of resources aimed at children who have diabetes, including guidance sheets about exploring the outdoors safely and taking care in cold weather. Advice includes wearing a diabetes wristband in case of an emergency and keeping a testing kit and snacks to hand. The idea of testing blood and injecting insulin can be intimidating. Give your students a look at a day in the life of a diabetic with this pack from the International Diabetes Federation. It uses a cartoon strip to demystify the process of checking blood sugar levels, as well as offering advice on how to keep active and eat healthily Continue reading >>

Yet, Diabetes UK Northern Ireland have been made aware that some children and families across Northern Irelandcan face great difficulties as they try to access a normal education and simultaneously manage their diabetes safely. These difficulties include lunchtime insulin provision, discrimination in relation to school trips and extra curricular activities and a range of general care issues such as teachers being made aware, a private room being available, treatment during a hypo and childrennot being permitted to eat in class. Parents guide - What Diabetes Care to Expect in Schools (PDF, 927KB) Diabetes UK Northern Ireland is delighted to support the work of the Southern Trust as they used the 4Ts campaign to help raise awareness of Type 1 diabetes in the Trust area. We are looking forward to working with other Trusts in helping to promote 4Ts awareness. Here is the press release whic was featured in a number of the local papers covering the Southern Trust: Integrated Care Partnerships (ICPs) in the Southern area are working in partnership with Diabetes UK and the Southern Education and Library Board (SELB) to highlight the symptoms of Type 1 diabetes. Research by Diabetes UK has shown that up to nine out of 10 parents do not know the four main symptoms of Type 1 diabetes. To address this lack of awareness, the charity created a campaign to highlight the 4 Ts of Type 1 diabetes symptoms. The 4 Ts stand for Toilet, Thirsty, Tired and Thinner: ToiletToilet- going to the loo a lot, bed wetting by a usually dry child or heavier nappies in babies; ThirstyThirsty- being really thirsty and not bein Continue reading >>

Student's Poster A Winner In National Diabetes Education Campaign

Belleville - Students at Holy Rosary Catholic School in Belleville were among those at 30 schools who won a Everyone Jump Celebration Concert as part of an educational campaign about diabetes. Everyone Jump, a program of the Ontario Physical and Health Education Association is designed to build awareness and knowledge of the importance of healthy lifestyle behaviours, such as physical activity and healthy eating, as a means of type 2 diabetes prevention. Jessica McMahon's Grade 5 class took part in the educational campaign and challenge, and a poster designed by Hannah Reid was one of 30 winners out of about 300 entries from students in British Columbia, Alberta, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Ontario and Saskatchewan. "Hannah is our winner but my entire class is winners," McMahon said. She said the program included ideas for daily physical activity and physical education as well as a book of lesson plans and a music CD, and they helped her students learn about type 2 diabetes and ways Local MPP and Minister of Education Leona Dombrowsky attended the school Friday morning prior to the concert to present Hannah with a plaque recognizing her accomplishment. "We are recognizing a special student in the school - congratulations, Hanna," Dombrowsky said. "But, I think that I want everyone in the school to feel good about what's happened here." The Everyone Jump program started in Ontario in 2005 and expanded to include other provinces in in the past few years. More information is available at www.everyonejump.ca Continue reading >>

Diabetes Education

Diabetes Education

My grandpa had diabetes, lost his leg before he died. A day behind with Day 5 of Health Activists Writers Month Challenge. (In my defense I did post yesterday and yesterdays post was viewed more than any other post Ive ever written it just wasnt my Day 5 post Thank you to all who viewed the post and shared your thoughts your support means so very much.) Day 5 Challenge: If I could do anything as a Health Activist Think big today! Money/time/physical limitations are no longer an issue. What is your biggest goal that is now possible? And/Or Whats your one, three, or five-year plan for your Health Activism? If money and time were not issues I would work towards educating the world about Type 1 Diabetes. I would use either existing posters ( International Diabetes Foundation has created one) and/or create new posters, flyers, videos about the early symptoms of Type 1 diabetes to distribute to all doctors offices (pediatric & general health care providers), school health offices and hospitals. I mean truck loads of them and I would hire folks to hang the posters so they didnt sit rolled up in some back office where advertisements for over priced meds go). The posters would include illustrations of children and adults doing the things that many parents and patients miss (or explain away) prior to diagnosis or after it is too late to save the child/person. The posters will also identify myths about Type 1 well-managed diabetes is the cause of absolutely nothing (Dr. William Polonsky) complications can happen and will happen with poorly managed diabetes a person with type 1 diabetes is always insulin dependent a person with T1 has to check blood sugar at least 4 times a day yes it hurts a parent of a child with type 1 diabetes did not cause it to happen a person with T1 can do Continue reading >>

Diabetes Advocacy...going To School

Diabetes Advocacy...going To School

Sending any child to school may often cause a parent great anxiety at leaving their little angel in the care of strangers for an extended period of time. This anxiety becomes ten-fold when sending a child with a chronic illness to school. No one can possibly care for our child like we do so how do you keep your child as safe as possible when you arent there? If you live in the USA, you ensure that you have a 504 Plan in place that outlines the quality of care and responsibilities legally required by the school. If you live in Canada the road is not as clear. In Canada, each board has a separate policy. If your board does not have a Diabetes Policy in place, approach them and ask that it be done. With the increased number of children being diagnosed with this disease, it is in their best interest to prepare specific policies relating to the care of students with this disease. Ask to have a say, investigate other policies and try to work out one that is mutually beneficial to all parties. Policy or not, 504 Plan or not, your child must still be educated and it is still the parents responsibility to do as much as they can to prepare the school to care for their child. Contact your school and ask for an in-service with all personnel who will be in contact with your child. Have your CDE or public health nurse attend to ensure that everyone is properly trained and aware of what is involved in having a child with Type 1 diabetes in their school. If your child is on an Insulin pump, you may wish to show the pump or have pictures of it made available so that everyone understands that it is a piece of medical equipment.You may also wish to go over some of the alarms so that staff are aware of what to do even if your child is either too young to understand or not able to communic Continue reading >>
