Explaining Diabetes to Kids

Did you know that insulin works like a key to a door?

Insulin opens the doors to the cells of our body. When the doors swing open, the sugar in our bloodstream enter our cells, and our body uses that sugar for energy.

This is an example of one way to explain diabetes to kids.

For other helpful tips, plus educational word games, read the DRI's brochure "Diabetes & Kids".
