Psychological Issues in Childhood Diabetes Mellitus

  • Alan M. Delamater


Diabetes imposes considerable demands on children and their families. As they are coping with normal developmental challenges, the additional burden of diabetes may be difficult for many children and families to deal with effectively. Especially challenging may be the demands of intensive management. With children as patients, families play a significant role in diabetes management, and are instrumental in the implementation of interventions. The quality of life of all family members is potentially affected by diabetes.
