Insulin Pumps, Traveling

Question from Connecticut, USA:

We will be traveling at the end of the month to Ireland with my five year old daughter who has diabetes. Do you have any knowledge about how Type 1 diabetes is treated in Ireland as opposed to in the United States? She is five years old and on the pump.


From: DTeam Staff

Childhood diabetes is managed very similarly in Ireland to the US. However, I am confident that they have as little pump experience as we do in the UK. The reason for this is partly financial. However, the principles of insulin therapy are the same.
