Question:

From Maine, USA:

Our seven year old son has had diabetes for 3 years. We have been trying to get testing in the classroom for him but have been told that there is a risk of blood borne pathogens. Is this true? What are the CDC's guidelines on this issue?

Answer:

There are guidelines from OSHA which pertain to blood glucose monitoring in schools. In New York State there are also infection control guidelines. I would suggest they contact the equivalent of their state board of education concerning their particular requirements.

[Editor's comment: You could also contact the American Diabetes Association, and ask them. See Diabetes at School. WWQ]
