It is overwhelming to be a parent of a child with a recent diagnosis of type 1 diabetes. There is so much information out there about managing the disease and hard to know how to prioritize it. It is even more challenging for parents who are working, have small children or have multiple children!
T1D Parenting Solutions is here to give you the support you need.
Our services are educational and supplement the information provided to you by your endocrinology team. T1D Parenting Solutions is not meant to replace the care of a pediatric endocrinologist.
"When Noor was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 13 months, I was pregnant with my third child and working full-time as an emergency physician.
That day was life-changing for our entire household. Even as a practicing physician, I very quickly realized that all my training was insufficient for the challenges that lay ahead.
The years that followed included many sleepless nights and chaotic days full of tears, fear and anxiety. How I wish I had known someone at the time who could have shown me a roadmap for how to proceed.
In the past 6 years, I have gained an immense understanding of the medical and psychosocial intricacies of this disease. Today, Noor's diabetes is a way of life not only for her, but our entire household.
I started T1D Parenting Solutions to apply my experience as a physician mom of a T1D warrior and as a medical educator to help others struggling with parenting a child with T1D."
