"LOL.....and they say that 3am is the peak time for growth hormones and testosterone to hit which why a lot of kids experience what is caused the dawn phenomenan."

"My son is 14 so a little more common for the occasional acne flare ups. I know its hard to resist, but I would avoid "popping zits". This can cause permanent scarring. Adolescent acne starts when the testosterone levels start to increase…"

Jerodsmom replied to Laura's discussion 'Question from a newbie parent' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"My son was diagnosed when he was 12. He will be 14 next week. He has been diabetic for 1 1/2 years. My son loves and I mean loves the pump. A pump gives so much tighter control, eliminates so many shots and really gave him back normalcy that he…"

Jerodsmom replied to Laura's discussion 'Question from a newbie parent' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"Well...one of the things you have on your side is your son’s age. At this age during the night, hormones and testosterone peak. This is why a lot of kids this age have what is called the dawn phenomenan. Which is basically they wake up high…"

"We went through something similar the year my son was diagnosed. Honestly, my best advice is to tell them you want her removed from that teachers class. This is what we did and it was my sons saving grace. His old math teacher was an idiot. I would…"

"Goodness......your wife certainly sounds like a work of art! How awful of her to say those things. I think diabetes camp is a wonderful idea. My son went last year for the first time and loved it. Have him signed up for this summer and he is looking…"

Jerodsmom commented on Penny R.'s group 'parents of kids with Type 1'
"I agree with Elizabeth. To hear that your wife has made any negative comments to your child about her disease is sad. This isnt a disease that is going away any time soon and could very well be for her entire life. Your daughter has enough to deal…"

Jerodsmom commented on Penny R.'s group 'parents of kids with Type 1'
"My sons pump which was only 7 months old decided to quit working. Thankfully it was under warranty and they sent out a replacement within 24 hours. That 24 hours my son was miserable. Was so unhappy having to go back to shots until the new pump…"

Jerodsmom commented on Penny R.'s group 'parents of kids with Type 1'
"That is a shame that your wife has put that idea in her head that the pump is ugly. The pump gave my son so much more normalcy in life. It also allows you to give exact insulin instead of rounding up or down which then can give you better blood…"

Jerodsmom replied to ValerieE's discussion 'high A1C but normal blood sugar tests' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"My first guess is if you are doing a home A1C test, that it is not accurate. If you are checking her as often as you say, including night time and not getting high readings, to have that high of an A1C, the numbers don't jive. I wouldnt even…"

jacob is 13 as well! we should start a new group 13 year old boys with type 1, there are afew on here! jacob does well but still has some anxiety about sharing that he is a type 1 with everyone, his close friends know, for instance he just started gym and I turned his basal down and he is running high at lunch, he has gym mid morning, i am beginning to think he might me high because he is nervous about someone seeing his pod while changing or just the whole situation of something new, i've asked him if he would like to join tu diabetes and he says no he likes to handle it which he does well and forget it! i understand that he is busy being a kid at least he is responsible and knowledgeable! have a good week! amy

Also, if you are on Facebook, there is a local group that meets in Rochester.

Not a very user friendly name, but here it is:

"Type 1 diabetic support metro detroit/oakland, macomb area Michigan"

It was just recently started... has about 40 members right now.

Just sent you a friend request, so I could forward my contact info.

Yes, it does suck! And yes, we must accept it and move on.

Hello. I just joined TU, and just this morning joined the Great Lakes Group. I saw that your son was just dx about 5 months ago. My 14 year-old daughter was just dx about 6 weeks ago. :-(

I am guessing from your comments that you must be with the Beaumont Endos.

We are too.

I didn't buy any of that "wait a year" baloney. We were quite insistent and tenacious, and have finally been approved for a pump. Hope to have it by early April.

Let me know if you'd like to chat about this... and THEM.

==> Mike.
