Just to introduce myself my name is Tracy from Tulare, CA. A proud wife and mother. My Husband is a Type 1 diabetic ( dx @ 16 months )on the Omnipod since 6/2010 and both of my sons are also type 1. Michael age 8 dx 5/2008 on the Omnipod since 1/2009 and Owen is 6 dx with type 1 and hypothyrodism 7/2008 he is also on the Omnipod since 4/2010. He was also participating in TrailNet prior to dx where he was shown to be positive for the antibodies). I started this group to get to know other families that have multiple members with type 1.

You must be simply heart broken. I'm so sorry this has happened again in your family. It's just not fair. My kids were diagnosed at age 5 ( in full DKA) and then the youngest one at age 2.5. I understand what you are going through. Please do share his story.

Hi Guys. I never thought I would have to join this group. My 8 year old son was diagnosed on March 6, 2010 and this Tuesday my 5 year old son was diagnosed. I will be blogging about his journey.

Hi. T1 14 years dx '00 at age 12, Animas Ping pump since '10 (soon to be Vibe) user in BC.
My younger cousin Meg has had it since 1995 when she was 18 months old and she got her pump last year which is Medtronic.

My first love also was a type 1 who was diagnosed 2 years before me ;)

My 9 yr. old and I both have T1D. I'm a Medtronic user. She is an Animas user. We live in Stoneham, MA. I'm looking for another 8 - 10 yr. old girl with T1D who lives nearby. Hopefully, the girls could meet and play together sometime.

I'm also extremely frustrated w/Animus reporting. Any pros out there?

I was diagnosed in 2010 with T1, and one of my younger brothers and my mother have it as well. Including us, there are 9 family members with T1 on Mom's side of the family.

Hi everybody. I have had Type I for 40 years and am on the Minimed pump. My 9 year old daughter also has Type I and wears the Minimed pump too! It makes for an interesting dinner table!
