Diabetic Alert Dogs AKA DAD'S
If you have well-controlled diabetes, with only a few episodes of hypoglycemia, (low blood sugar) or you still have symptoms which alert you that your blood glucose level is dropping, you might find this interesting but
NOT NECESSARY LIFESAVING.
The general consensus for those who have a 'DAD' in their family whether theirs or their child's is that they breathe easier and are more in control.
THE FEAR OF
THE DREADED NIGHT TIME HYPO
YOU FINDING YOUR CHILD CONVULSING OR WORSE
YOUR CHILDREN COME IN TO WAKE YOU UP BUT....
LIVING ALONE IT DOESN'T GET ANY HARDER
Fears also include waking up in hospital or people staring and trying to offer support.
Being totally confused knowing your.... but just can't put the pieces together.
Yes! even being accused of being drunk or high.
Being unable to concentrate when your sugar is either too low or too high, being tied ever so tired.
Plus diabetes can destroy your body piece by piece.
Welcome to a unstable diabetics nightmare, whats even worse is the lost of self esteem, independence and just participating in life and enjoying it.
Welcome back healthy happy active lifestyle.
A DAD becomes your life partner, an additional tool whether alerting you or a 3rd person.
Retrieving Hypo Relief drinks or food tester or medication. Your best friend doesn't replace other tools. A DAD is intended to be utilized in conjunction with all the conventional tools for diabetes management.
Yes a DAD can help you but they are not for everyone!.
FOR MOST PEOPLE IT IS THE COST OR THE EVER SO LONG WAITING LIST
IF THIS IS THE CASE
ONE OF THESE PROGRAMS COULD BE THE ANSWER!
