Project: ”Telemedicine Centre for Paediatric Diabetes”
Partner: Support for Diabetes Association
Beneficiaries: Children with T1D, insulin-dependent
Launch Year: 2017
Budget: 270,160 lei
Establishing the first telemedicine center in Romania managing insulin-dependent children from across the country, and in particular for those living in technologically and medically disadvantaged areas.
The life of a child with insulin-dependent diabetes may depend on the timely detection of dangerous blood glucose variations and on the prevention of major glycaemic emergencies. This involves at least 4-5 daily insulin injections as well as multiple blood glucose measurements before each injection, between meals, during playtime and during the night.
Establishment and endowment of the first “Telemedicine Center for Pediatric Diabetes” that provided over 150 insulin-dependent children from all over the country with blood glucose sensors.
The sensors measure the blood glucose levels of these children in real time. The children are continuously monitored via a platform accessible to both their physicians and their family members.
150 diabetic children benefited from high quality medical care;
50 out of 150 insulin-dependent children benefited from blood glucose sensors;
50 parents have acquired essential notions of diabetes management.
