Case study 8

Mr. Allen was a 12 year old boy when he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes mellitus. He still remembers the nurses who explained things to him at a time when he was so frightened and did not understand what was happening to his body. He recalls how things were explained through pictures and demonstrations.
Although he does not remember what facts he learned at this time, he vividly recalls the kind and hopeful manner of the nurses who regularly met with him and his mom to teach both of them what was needed for his care at home.
