Driving safety: concerns and experiences of parents of adolescent drivers with type 1 diabetes
Pediatric Diabetes, 05/31/2012Cox DJ et al.
Driving is a dangerous activity for adolescents, perhaps being even more precarious for adolescents with type 1 diabetes due to the possibility of extreme blood glucose (BG). There is no available data on adolescent driving safety concerns and type 1 diabetes. To begin addressing this issue, they surveyed parents regarding their observations and concerns. Seventy–two parents (87.5% mothers) of adolescent drivers aged 16–19 with type 1 diabetes provided analyzable data.
