Our combined organizations (Diabetes Activist/Meta T1D, TestOneDrop.org, Kisses for Kycie Foundation and Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes have joined as partners under the banner UP Rising Against DKA (United Parents Against Diabetic Keto-acidosis).

DKA diagnosis (96% of children under age 3 and 67% under age 5) is still happening.

Children are dying at alarming rates due to lack of awareness in spite of 100% preventability with current technology that detects and can diagnose in the early stages.

We are working to prevent DKA fatalities and permanent handicap through education and awareness to the public and to providers of medical care.
