Hi - I just thought it might be nice if those of us who have toddlers with diabetes could start a discussion about the challenges we face in managing their diabetes. Our son, William, was diagnosed April 12, 2007 with Diabetes 1, when he was just 15 months old. We're almost three months into his treatment and I find myself with a million questions that are specific to toddlers. We are currently on MDI (4x a day - Lantus 1x a day and Humalog 3x a day). We're in the process of making a decision to move to a pump, mainly because his doses are so small that injections make it very difficult to control his BG. If anyone wants to join in the discussion, I would be grateful.
Mom to Carter, 5 years old, and William, 18 months old (diagnosed April 2007)
