My t1d son was diagnosed in October...and I have to say doing much better now than I thought he would be with much more stable numbers and no scary lows (knock on wood!). He knows what a low feels like and can name it, but when he is high (200's) I am wondering if maybe he is not linking symptoms to the high. Anyone else notice tummy aches or strong emotions or headaches in kids when they run a little high? I can't tell if he is just getting a headache and it happens to be when he is high, or if it is part of the higher blood sugar. When we went to the hospital we were in the 600's, and he was tired and often headachy, but I am certainly not talking that high at all!
Man, keeping up on this kid's health gets tiring!
Hi jeje, i can only relate my sons experience here, type 1 for four years. he is typically only symptomatic with highs when he really high say over 300 for a while then the typical thirst, increased urination and stomach upset or general not feeling well. how old is your son some of his sx's could he hormonal or stress related. jacob is a bit prone to headaches but i tend to link them more to stress, not enough fluids or a low. obviously every child is different with all of this. i just realized he is just a few months in it sounds like you are both adjusting pretty well, this is such a great site for info and support, as you probably realize no one else gets the concern and so many variables with dealing with a child with D, we get you and are here for you. best wishes, amy
First, let me compliment you on being remarkably together for someone so recently diagnosed! My son is significantly younger (he's 3, diagnosed at 21 months) so he doesn't really tell us much. He definitely gets weepy at either extreme so behavior at least lets me know to check. Sometimes, he's just cranky! He definitely gets a tummy ache when he has ketones.
Does your son have a CGM? This may help you a little with pattern recognition.
