I am in discussions with someone who might help educate Family Physicians (Pediatricians would be next) on a fairly large-scale to administer a protocol for (at least) a urine sample when symptoms in any shape or form resemble a possible T1 diabetes diagnosis (whether it be flu, sever back aches etc etc). At the very least it could/might be an education campaign; our discussions are in the very early stages but my contact is very interested in helping,
What I need from you.
I am trying to collect every media story I can for any child diagnosed with T1 diabetes upon their death.
Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org and in the subject line please write, “Media”. Do not assume that it was so popular that I probably received already. I need to create a case for the person I’m speaking to and I could use your help. Do not send any stories/links prior to January 1, 2008.
Let;s start to change this once and for all. No child should die upon diagnosis right after seeing their family doctor. No Child.
I am a diabetes dad.
