I was wondering if anyone has a copy of a poem I think that I got from somone on here about how god chooses mothers of children that are diabetic. I used to have a copy of it in my wallet but I lost my wallet and of course my only copy. Thanks.

Hi, I have two little girls that are 10 and 8 living with type one. Look forward to a book that I will be publishing. It is geared for tweens but everyone who knows someone with diabetes will get something out of it.

@Fighting for Stephany - My 10 yr old has trouble sleeping lately. Once in a while she takes 1mg of Melatonin and sleeps much better. We don't do it often b/c it makes her sleep really deeply and at least now lows wake her up.

My son's auto-immune diseases started with Thyroid in second/third grade (which is rare for boys) and progressed to Type I Diabetes at sophomore in high school. They waited and waited and kept retesting hoping that his low thyroid numbers were mono or some other disease that they were not specifically testing. He never recovered Thyroid function and takes synthetic Thyroid but the good news was we caught his Type I early due to our great Endo and he has never been in the hospital.

My daughter was diagnosed Type 1 just 8 months ago...She started complaining that she had trouble falling asleep..She was very tired during the day and looked so pale...Her blood sugar numbers were fine...My endo ran bloodwork and it turns out it was her thyroid, which is not uncommon with Type 1...Now she takes a little pill every morning and has no more trouble sleeping and looks great again!

My son also has been type 1 for just short of 9 years. He is 19. Pre-pump, rising overnight BG's always affected his sleep and he would definitely be irritable waking up that way, and be just plain difficult to get out of bed. If someone in the household is a late to bed sort of person, they might do a late check each night and correct any rising BG. Just verify with your endo to see what level they suggest correcting to so that you don't worry about an overnight low.

I have a 15 year old daughter who is type 1 diabetic for the past 9 yrs. My question is can it affect sleep? Mine has alot of problems sleeping and staying asleep. I have spoken to pediatrician and she said not to worry about it. But when she wakes up irritable and her sugar is high I worry about it. Any advice...
