Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

For diabetic children, this spooky season can be a really tricky time.

Children with diabetes must add up the amount of carbohydrates they eat and balance that with precisely the right amount of insulin.

It can be tough, for parents and especially for kids. So, to make things easier, experts have developed the first online app to help families calculate dosages ahead of time.  

The online diabetes calculator for kids creates a printable, portable chart that makes meal times less stressful.  

It's easy, available to everyone and it's free! Happy Halloween and stay safe out there Trick-or-Treaters!
