Jo Ann Hagemeier, a dietitian and employee wellness coordinator at Peterson Regional Medical Center, said managing diabetes as a child and adolescent can be tricky.
"The difference with a teen is they are growing," she said, adding that puberty can alter a child's metabolism and how their body processes blood sugar.

"It's a convenient thing to say that you're going to lose weight in the new year, but it's rarely as easy as it sounds," said Jo Ann Hagemeier, director of Peterson Regional Medical Center's wellness program.
The main problem: Biting off more than you can chew.
Hagemeier said many resolution dieters set weight loss goals that are too ambitious. When they fail to meet those goals in a short amount of time, they give up all together.
She said a healthy goal to set is about two pounds a week. Crash dieters can often lose more pounds quicker, but those dieters are more likely to gain them back by the end of the year.
"Healthy, life-long weight management needs to be balanced," she said. "If your goal is to lose a bunch of weight fast, then you may try a crash diet for a few weeks, lose the weight, then stop the diet, then gain it back."
Another common problem that dooms many weight loss plans is lack of variety in exercise plans.
"Exercise doesn't always mean an expensive gym membership," Hagemeier said.

Jo Ann Hagemeier, nutritionist at Sid Peterson Memorial Hospital, walked through Albertson's with a group of local women Thursday to give them a healthier view of the grocery store.
Starting in the deli section, Hagemeier advised the women about portion sizes of meats.
"A portion for lunch and dinner should be about the size of your hand," she said.
The grocery tour conducted by Hagemeier is part of the Get Fit Kerr County initiative, which seeks to educate residents about healthy habits.The tours began in February - with local nutritionists taking groups through H-E-B, Wal-Mart and Albertson's - and will continue in March.
The purpose of the tours, Hagemeier said, is to bring people greater understanding of nutrition and help them sort through foods at the grocery store to find healthy options.
"I hope they will get an awareness of what they eat, what they are putting in their bodies and how it contributes to medical conditions," Hagemeier said.
While on the tour, the group also learned about the different types of fats, which foods are the best sources of fiber and which are high in sodium.
One attendee received a crash course in label reading.
Hagemeier showed Dunn how to properly read labels, discerning saturated fat content and comparing the information with recommended daily allowances.

Jo Ann Hagemeier is a registered dietitian in the Disease Management Program at Sid Peterson Memorial Hospital, who counsels people with diabetes about their eating habits.
"As we always say, all things in moderation," she said."If you have a favorite food, go ahead and eat some, just control the portion size.Don't deprive yourself."
Hagemeier said that the secret to healthy eating at any time is planning ahead."It's always a matter of getting back to basics and meal planning.Think ahead and make choices ahead of time."She also recommends buying snack foods in individual serving sizes, so as not to be tempted by larger amounts in an already-opened bag or box."That works for some people," she said.
Hagemeier agrees with Chene that the best way to serve sweet potatoes with Christmas dinner is to bake them whole and that it is healthier to avoid self-basting turkeys.
Hagemeier suggests rubbing your bird with herbs
For holiday parties - which would certainly include Christmas dinner with relatives or friends - Hagemeier recommends filling up a bit with low-calorie snacks and diet or club soda beforehand.She also advised splitting a dessert with a friend and using a salad or appetizer plate at buffets.
Many readers think of pecan pie when they think of Christmas dinner desserts.It's hard to envision a light and healthy version, but Hagemeier has a recipe for Diabetic Pecan Pie that has 110 calories per slice (1/10 of the pie), as opposed to the 400 calories in a garden variety pecan pie.
Like Chene and Hagemeier, she does not recommend using self-basting birds.
