Say It Right Series

Diabetes and China

Posted by orjohnston May 27, 2008 in the Group General Discussion.

I am moving to China for 6 months this summer and happen to have type 1 diabetes (requiring insulin).  Wondering if someone can help me understand what to say if I need to ask someone for help while there including "I have diabetes", "I need some fruit juice quickly", and "Take me to a hospital".  It would also be helpful to understand the following words: insulin, syringe, and sugar.  Any other basic language indicating a medical emergency would be helpful.

Hopefully of course I won't need any of it!!
