Continuing educationDiabetes Care Center helps family manage diabetes
“The pump allows them to be more like regular kids,” Tara said. “They don’t have to stop, take out a kit, draw insulin and give injections. They can adjust insulin to allow for activity with the touch of a button.”
While T.J. is beginning his diabetes education, the girls have become more independent.
“We’re taking on more of a supporting role with the girls and letting them manage the daily care,” Tara said. “The girls are also involved in T.J.’s care, and it’s great having that support system within the family.”
When the Olson family travels, it packs what Tara calls a “traveling pharmacy” to ensure the kids stay healthy.
“Troy and Tara made life normal for their children, in light of having diabetes,” Dr. Twogood said. “They moved on with life and provided love and support without overprotecting the children, which has helped them become more independent with their care. They’re doing everything right.”
