Meet Jerry the Bear

A comforting companion for children with type 1 diabetes

Jerry makes learning fun!

Kids take care of Jerry by feeding him a healthy diet and keeping his blood sugar level in a good range by counting carbs and matching insulin doses.

When Jerry’s blood sugar level goes high or low, Jerry speaks his symptoms, encouraging kids to recognize how they feel!
