Teens with Type 1 Diabetes face the same challenges of adolescence as their mainstream peers, with the added stress of managing a chronic condition. They deserve ongoing support and encouragement whether diagnosed in early childhood or while dealing with a new diagnosis. Peer support from other teens with diabetes may help them manage adolescent stress better, as well as reducing the risk of dangerous complications.
