Has your daughter got a dedicated nurse to help her with it, if not, then you should approach her GP. I'm not an expert far from it, but GP's and the health authority are responsible for her care. Diabetes UK can help. Diabetes can be managed, but it takes vigilence and discipline. I know women who have been diagnosed with diabetes after pregnancy, have almost special needs especially when the demands of bringing up a child conflict with the needs of the mother. But help is available, you need to get your daughter to the GP as a matter of urgency.
Sometimes GP's aren't very good at providing what patients need especially with Diabetes, I know, they did nothing for me, I had to do it myself.
Please try Diabetes UK first, they are extremely helpful, and will give you as much help as they can.
Ultimately though, unless there is an underlying undiagnosed condition, the patient must take responsibility for managing their condition.
Diet, exercise and regular monitoring are the foundations for managing diabetes.
This may sound harsh, but your daughter must think of her child as she will be the foundation of her child's future.
Diabetes, means being responsible, not only to yourself but others. It is a manageable condition.
