  • 2. What is Type II Diabetes?
    Type II Diabetes is different from the Diabetes most people know about. Type II Diabetes is the most common case and growing day by day due to the growing obesity rate.
    1/4th of the people diagnosed with Type II Diabetes are children. (Marotz, 110)
  • 3. What is Type II Diabetes?
    “Occurs when the pancreas produces an insufficient amount of insulin or when cells in the body are not able to use the insulin properly.” (Harrell, Jessup, &Greene, 2006)
    Type II Diabetes also has a high correlation with childhood obesity. (Rosenbloom, 346)
  • 4. Signs and Symptoms
    Excessive thirst/hunger
    Dry, itchy skin
    Rapid Weight Loss
    Fatigue/ Weakness
    Nausea or Vomiting
    Frequent Urination
    (Marotz, 110)
  • 5. How to Manage Life with Diabetes
    Type II Diabetes can be controlled by a strict diet, exercise, and medication. Although it isn’t always necessary some people still use insulin injections.
    Too much insulin and too little insulin can cause other serious health issues.
    (Marotz, 110)
  • 6. How to Manage Life with Diabetes
    When insulin forgotten and not in the system it can cause another serious condition called Hyperglycemia.
    Hyperglycemia is “a condition characterized by an abnormally high level of sugar in the blood.” (Marotz, 110)
  • 7. How to Manage Life with Diabetes
    Children living with Diabetes also have to check their Blood Glucose Level at various times during the day.
    On average parents test children 8-12 times a day, sometimes even more when they are sick, or on the low or high end of the spectrum.
    (American Diabetes Association)
  • 8. Teacher Modifications
    Snack time snacks would have to follow the dietary needs of diabetic students.
    Create activities that encourage physical activity and exercise in the classroom and out.
    Be aware and up to date on symptoms of any students health issues (in this case diabetes).
  • 9. In my future classroom
    Make exercise a fun activity rather than a chore.
    Recess, different interactive classroom games
    Promote healthy snacks
    Apple slices, grapes, carrots
    Read up on my students health issues
    In case of emergency situations
    Have “Fun Snack Friday”
    Children can pick a treat they would like for snack. (Cookies, Baked Chips, Goldfish)
