Diabetes card

Designed for a child to carry with them at school, the diabetes card (or ‘hypo card’) states that the child has diabetes and what to do if they have a low blood glucose level (hypoglycaemia). Great for children and young people to carry around when they’re at school - particularly high schools where children interact with lots of different teachers.
