I am a parent and a wife of type 1's and I have type 2.... David was just diagnosed in March. What about you?
Well my parents have a kid with type one... Haha, I'm so naughty. :D
Our family has diabetes, my daughter, who is now 11 months old, was diagnosed at 8 months. It's been a challenge the last 3 months trying to figure out if she's crying due to diabetes or is it just because she's 11 months old. But, everyone is doing great with it.
Yes, And we live close to ya. We are from Niagara Falls. Feel free to add myself or my wife as a friend if you feel like talking.
hi everybody, we are in welland, ontario, very close to niagara falls, as david mentioned!

i am always in the parents of kids with type 1 group, i kind of forgot about this group! whoops!

anyone on cgm here? lots of americans talking about it, but i wonder if it is covered here, and what your experiences are...i think my son is too small to deal with two infusion sites - he is 5 and using an animas pump. it's great.
My son Liam was diagnosed with type 1 in 2000 when he was 2 years old. He has been using a Cozmo pump for the past 4+ years and loving it!
My son was diagnosed on July 17th with Type 1. He is six years old. It is been quite the adjustment. But we have had excellent support from our health care team.
Hey Blondie, I am in Edmonton too and I have two boys. One with Type I. You are invited to join the Facebook group "Canadian Diabetes Type I". There are several Edmontonians in there with kids. Melissa :)
No way, I am in St Albert! Wow, nice to know we're not alone.
Hey there, it is a huge adjustment, you never truely sleep again, hang in there.
We have a six year old and a 13 year old with type 1, i day at a time.
