TREATing diabetic kids like everyone else

Started this discussion. Last reply by Aimee Oct 26, 2011. 8 Replies

This is a bit of rant.... I see a trend of parents of diabetic children that want their children to be treated just like everyone else; even when it comes to food. That sounds good on paper, but I…Continue

Aimee replied to Leslie65's discussion 'Severe Insulin Resistance'
"Hi Leslie,I too am extremely insulin resistant. I take 100 units of Lantus a day, although my doctor asked me to split into a morning and evening injection (50/50). Also, Metformin helps keep my blood sugars down. If I forget to take a dose, my…"

Aimee replied to Zoe's discussion 'Kinked Canulas'
"I actually find the manual insertion of the Sure T much easier than when I was using an inserter with the Quick-sets. The steel canula just pushes right in. We don't insert at an angle so it seems pretty easy. I wish you the best of luck!"

Aimee replied to Zoe's discussion 'Kinked Canulas'

Thanks for the note. I've been struggling, but I think we'll get it together sometime. It's got to be so hard to be an active teen & then suddenly get this diagnosis. Sometimes I feel like we're just going on as normal, but in the background, things really aren't normal! So we still just have to figure it all out. I definitely like to talk to other parents. I haven't connected with anyone locally! Thank God I can ask questions on TuD.

HEY AIMEE--
THANX FOR YOUR KIND WORDS RE MY POSTING.
IT'S HARD TO IMAGINE THE WORRYING A PARENT MUST DEAL WITH WHEN A KID SO YOUNG IS TAGGED WITH TYPE 1. MY GUESS IS THAT YOU NEVER LET YOUR GUARD DOWN, FOREVER WONDERING WHERE YOUR LITTLE GIRL'S BLOOD SUGAR IS. THIS KIND OF SADNESS MAKES MY TEEN-ONSET DIABETES SEEM ALMOST TRIVIAL. I'M SO SORRY THAT YOU AND YOUR PUNK HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS EVERY DAY BUT CLEARLY YOU HAVE BOTH FOUND THE STRENGTH TO DO SO, AND THAT AIN'T EASY. HANG IN THERE AIMEE--BETTER TIMES ARE AHEAD!
