A diagnosis of type 1 diabetes is not easy, and can be unsettling for the whole family. You may be overwhelmed and flooded with emotions and questions. Most people are unfamiliar with type 1 diabetes and it is common to feel shock, guilt, sadness and even anger. These feelings are normal and can come and go, and even change over time. Keep in mind that this difficult time will pass and you will regain your feeling of balance. The best way to move forward is to address your child’s medical condition directly, as well as your feelings. The Charles H. Best Diabetes Centre (the Centre) has a team of professionals to help you with all aspects of your child’s diabetes education; this includes Physicians, Registered Nurses, Registered Dietitians and Registered Social Workers.
