Managing Type 1 Diabetes in Children

different types of medicine

Insulin is a hormone that moves glucose or sugar from the blood to your cells so that your body has glucose energy to utilize. Insufficient amounts of insulin or the body’s unresponsiveness to this hormone results in conditions referred to as Type 1 and Type 2
Diabetes, respectively.

Diabetes is a long-term condition characterized by high glucose or sugar levels in the blood, and children are commonly affected by Type 1 diabetes. Having insufficient insulin manifests physically as:

  • Extreme hunger and constant thirst
  • Nausea, vomiting, and lethargy
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Vision problems
  • Frequency of urination

Treatment of Type 1 Diabetes relies on insulin replacement and management of glucose levels. If you need help regarding this matter, our pharmacists at Grand Pharmacy Llc can guide your child through Diabetes Management.

Our local pharmacy in Bensenville, Illinois, has a roster of qualified pharmacists to help your child in your presence to manage their condition. We provide education about the illness, ways to live with this condition, and the routine to follow to avoid further complications.

You can purchase Diabetes supplies in our pharmacy as well. These supplies are properly stored to avoid damage and to ensure that their quality is preserved. Not only are these supplies made of quality materials but are also cost-effective.

However, when supplies and intake of medication are not enough to manage your child’s Type 1 Diabetes to the point that they’re losing consciousness, promptly bring your child to the nearest hospital for immediate intervention. Our pharmacists can even help with referrals.

We are available online if you wish to connect with our pharmacists for help. Contact us by phone to enjoy a hassle-free transaction with our pharmacists and free prescription delivery of your medications! Get in touch.
