I'm also sorry to hear about your son.
I hear a lot of T1 talk about wearing the insulin pump because their sugar was either too high or way too low.

I am so sorry to hear about your little one. Unfortunately I don't know anything about type 1 in kiddos.

All I can offer is I used to work with someone who had a 10 year old who had been type 1 since he was a toddler and he was a happy, active, well adjusted kid.

I would also ask the doctor to refer you to someone for education for you now and later for your little one.

Hello, I've been a member of Spark for about a year now and it has been wonderful. Back in March 2010 my 3 year old was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. She was in the ICU for 3 days and in the hospital for an extra 2 days. It has been a dificult struggle to learn and take care of her while taking care of my other 2 children. I'm posting here to see if this can be an extra support for me and maybe I can help other type 1 diabetics with what I've learned. I don't know anything about type 2, sorry.
