I didn't give much thought to my daughter (7) having a glucometer, and a backup kit kept at the school for their easy use. It seemed the preferred method than trusting a 7yr old to retrieve the kit and bring it home with her after school each day.
Until the school was broken into, and the glucometer kit, poker, test strips and lancets were stolen just the other night.
Which got me to thinking.....
Have you etched your driver's license or similar identification onto the back of your family's glucometer yet? You might want to consider doing so. I'd also recommend not having anything such as "if lost, please return to...." inside the glucometer kit. The meter and such can be replaced. I'm just so grateful they don't have our home information. Bad enough the know her full name.
