Maybe since your son is low carb,raw diet..the docs can adjust the insulin ratios if he is going too low. Mine is super busy with sports and exercising and has huge amounts of carbs per meal and snacks right now....it is so hard to learn what works and what sends them sky high or down low. It is kinda like a trial and /error thing in the beginning . We leaned that even at a big low PB and J on low fat bread and low carb jelly still makes him wicked high....he missed it so thought why not? Guess we will save it for a snack/special occasion when you crave that taste. you can email me at craybas4@gmail.com ...we can talk about our similar situations~Alicia

oh, Annora, you might want to check out Gerri - here - she was voted our best coach for good eating recently - she has very good low carb recipes and she eats a lot of vegetables and very very few processed foods. She knows a lot about nutrition and diabetes, and we just love her!

also, we have many teens here if your son might like to join. There is a dedicated group of volunteers who monitor the site to make sure it's PG13 and safe for all of us. He might enjoy making friends with others his age that understand completely what he's going through.
