This is an open “topic” that should be at the top of the “Coping and Support” Community.

For the general T1N community - PLEASE do not post here if you are not a Teen or young adult.

@Dennis and I (your friendly volunteer moderators) will only deal with problems and not subject matter.

Hey y’all! Does anyone have any tips for dealing with teachers who aren’t very understanding of T1D? I had a pretty bad experience the other day with a teacher who wouldn’t let me eat during class and, when I told her I have a 504 plan, was super annoyed because (in her words) “you should’ve dealt with this earlier”. Just wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences :slight_smile:


(Chloe) #20

Yes
At one point I’ve been almost sent out of class because I was checking my level. Apparently that equates to playing on my phone (I have a CGM).


(Ali) #21

Honestly, when I was in high I would just talk about to them and tell them I have type 1 diabetes. But, I feel that most teachers would understand if you let them know start of the semester. Im currently in freshmen in college who don’t care what you do.
