UVA Project Question

  • Hi all,

    My name is Veronica and I am a 3rd year Biomedical Engineering major at the University of Virginia. For a class I am enrolled in this semester, we are studying diabetes and possible design concepts to treat this disease. My partner for the project, Claire, and I have decided to focus on nocturnal hypoglycemia in type I diabetics between the ages of 8-13. While our research has mostly been about the patient thus far, we have decided to additionally talk to parents of diabetics in order to get their perspective on this subject and how they help their children deal with nocturnal hypoglycemia. Any and all feedback would be very beneficial to us!! Thank you so much!

    Veronica and Claire

  • a few quick questions (just FYI - my son is 12 and T1)  Trying to determine what you are looking for... our son is on a CGM and typically is hypoglycemic unaware at night.. the CGM alerts us and we check and treat (typically with a juice box which at this point he can drink in his sleep)  For us it means less sleep and when he doesn't have the CGM we check at a minimum every three hours just to be safe since he doesn't wake up at all.  Feel free to email me at if you have questions (BTW.. my niece is a 2nd year at UVA this year and we are in SE VA so it is awful cool to have so much diabetes research so close)

  • It might be helpful if you had a list of questions to be answered or if you set up a survey.

    I'm much more informative when given prompts
