A total of 108 diabetic children and 153 controls has been examined by explorative methods and questionnaires. According to the results the relationship between the diabetic child and his surroundings is not satisfactory. The sporting possibilities of the diabetic child are scanty, often without reason. All this may be in relation with the erroneous knowledge on diabetes of the child and his environment. The diabetic children familiar with their disease are in a more advantageous position. In consequence diabetic children need more attention and care. Well-trained experts and teams have to direct their way of life.
