My three-year-old daughter was just diagnosed with diabetes. I know this may be in the future, but at what age should I begin to teach my daughter gradually how to become self-sufficient managing her insulin and diabetes? I am still in the process of learning about diabetes. My primary family doctor said I should teach her when she turns 15, but I don't want to just throw everything onto her and I feel that 15 is too late. Should it be a gradual process?
