When you're first diagnosed with diabetes, you're often overwhelmed with the amount of information that you have to learn right away. There's blood glucose testing, how to draw up and inject insulin, food choices and measurements, ketone testing, just to name a few. And you have to learn everything right away. If adults and parents struggle taking it all in, imagine how difficult it can be for kids. For newly diagnosed kids, dbaza's Diabetes Education for Kids CD-ROM can help. The software follows the American Diabetes Association Standards of Care guidelines, carries a Favorably Reviewed Seal from the American Association of Diabetes Educators, and is funded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, National Institutes of Health.
dbaza's Diabetes Education for Kids is an interactive CD-ROM game that teaches kids about the basics of diabetes care. Beginning with blood glucose testing, the game moves on to hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia, insulin injections, food choices, carbohydrate counting, and exercise. The full program takes several hours to complete, but it can be paused at any time and picked up again when you return. Using repetition, the game reinforces its educational messages often, and even asks kids to make a virtual book in which they explain the lesson they've just learned. dbaza's Diabetes Education for Kids is a great tool to help kids learn the basics of diabetes self-management and care.
dbaza's Diabetes Education for Kids runs only on computers running Windows 98 or later.
Parents may order the CD-ROM software package by calling toll-free at 1-866-322-9292 or visiting www.dbaza.com/cwd.
