Hi jennifer, I was wondering what you actually do to control your child's diabetes on a daily basis? Is your son's eating on a strict diet and schedule? My daughter's endoc tells us that her eating should only be at 7am breakfast then 9am snack, 1130am lunch 3pm snack and 630pm dinner and on a strict calorie count. I tried this but my daughter still complains she is hungry and asks for food and complains that she has tummyache. Do you give him food in between meal schedule? This I cannot understand because from what I understand of Insulin, it has a peak time and that is the only time she can eat. Is this how its supposed to be or do you give your son food in between meals? Please advise. Thanks again:) So confusing! Also, What is the signs when your son has a hypo and hyper?

I have a 2yr old dx that was dx at 10 months. Check out Children with Diabetes website and Forum. You ask us anything and someone is usually around to help. I find recording things in the beginning was really good. I also have made a binder will all information in it so I don't have to go searching if I need something. When in doubt test
hi there!, my 12 year son was diagnosed december '08,we are still new to coping with this disease.. it's very misunderstood by a lot of people..my son is on 3 injections a day at the moment..he eats very healthily but still tends to have high bgl's the hospital says it's hormones and he is growing!!..just make sure your little one always carries a hypo kit and make everyone aware of her diabetes,i found this really helpful as it makes them all aware of diabetes type 1 and everyone will go out thir way to help you and find out more about it..i think the more people who know of your childs diabetes,the safer they will be in case of a hypo or accident and the more comfort you wil feel in leaving her alone at school or at a friends house.. hope this helps!!..
