There are numerous families who suffered the ‘missed diagnosis’ by their doctor of their child’s type 1 diabetes, resulting in hardships and even death. Under a project called A Child’s Cry for Change, an attempt is being made to change this trend. The goal is to amass a large number of these missed diagnosis stories and present them to leadership in medicine, health agencies and/or government in the hopes that change occurs; the very least being the administration of a urine test (ideally a blood test).
I am tired of this happening and I will not sit still any longer; I said it a million times, just ‘don’t do nothing’. Will it work? I am not sure but doing nothing is unacceptable to me and we should certainly try. Will you join me?
