Local teen with Type 1 diabetes cannot go away to attend college without medical support

His Type 1 diabetic condition, however, makes it difficult to lead a normal life and often jeopardizes his safety. The Arnolds think they have found a solution that will allow Scott to attend college — the purchase of a diabetic “alert dog” to help monitor Scott’s glucose levels.
