Dr. David Repaske of Ohio's Nationwide Children's Hospital has designed a Web-based application that children with diabetes and their caregivers can use to create printable insulin dosing charts based on premeal blood sugar readings and carbohydrate counts. "The goal is to provide an additional tool to empower families to successfully manage their child's diabetes at home in order to provide as normal a life as possible for that child," Repaske said.
