With the widespread use of insulin pumps and multiple daily injection therapy among kids with type 1 diabetes, young kids who attend day care, before or after school programs, or camps need to take insulin while away from their parents. We asked our readers to tell us who administers insulin in these situations and found that just over one-third -- 38% -- report that their child self-administers.
