Bringing together diabetic children and their families with the lifelong love, devotion and assistance of a professionally trained Diabetic Alert Dog.
Hypoglycemic unawareness is a condition where a person is unable to detect when his or her blood sugar is falling or when it’s dangerously low until they begin experiencing symptoms. Since it is difficult for a diabetic adult to recognize when their blood sugar levels are low, it is even more difficult for a child.
By obtaining a professionally trained service dog to sense and identify the changes in blood chemistry that occur during rapid changes of blood sugar levels, children can be closely monitored for drops in blood sugar.
Diabetic Alert Dogs can be very expensive, despite having recognition from many medical insurance companies as being a trustworthy monitoring system. Mady's Way knows how difficult it can be for insulin-dependent children and their families to obtain these professionally trained dogs. It is our goal to provide constant monitoring for diabetic children with the aid of Diabetic Alert Dogs.
