Driving With Diabetes
Safe Driving With Diabetes
As a mom with 2 sons with diabetes who are both driving I am interested in hearing how others handle “driving with diabetes”.
The things we have done:
1. Both boys are on sensors
2. We are instilling in them the importance of testing before they turn the key even if they feel fine.
3. We have visor cases in their cars with dex 4 tablets, a cake gel and a drink box all in the cars they drive.
Although we think we are covering all the basis I would be interest in hearing what others are doing to ensure that our kids are safe on the road. Have an idea, let us know, safe driving is important and we want to keep our kids safe.
Wouldn’t it be nice if the car wouldn’t start until they tapped a drop of blood into the installed tester and if it was under 70 wouldn’t let them start the car!
