Don't be discouraged. When many older folks were diagnosed they were not receiving the great medical care and advances in technology that we are benefiting from today. My mother was type-1 and she led a very different life then my son it was very rigid and often stressful. With Sam he leads a very happy and active life.

We live in West Orange, NJ.

Hi Kim,

I too am from NJ. My son Sam who is will be 6 tomorrow was diagnosed 3 years ago. We are using an Animas 1250 pump. He started Kindergarten this year and goes to Karate and Swimming. Please feel free to reach out to me or if you husband wants to as speak to another father he can contact me as well.

Hi Kim,

My son is also 7 (march bday). He was diagnosed with type 1 in July of 06. We are still doing injections. Not quite ready for the pump yet. I've been thinking about the omnipod.......

Kim, I'll probably be needing some support when we finally start all this! Your son was doing 8 shot a day? We're doing 4 and that seems like a lot. It's always with is, isn't it?

Welcome to Tudiabetes! You have joined a great online community/family.

BTW, your son is a Q-T pie

Kim, we ordered the Animas Ping. It was between that one and the Minimed. I'm a little afraid of the new learning curve, and the ports - - "infusion sets??" But I think it will be great. Alden is active like your son. We start ski season in a couple of months, and I'm thinking it might really be cool to be able to give him a bolus dose without having to take everything off (because of the remote). Also, he spend his entire summer in and out of the lake up here, so we went for the waterproof one. The other thing is this: Alden was so recently diagnosed that I think it will be good to have the pump when he comes out of the honeymoon stage. I hear that can be a little hairy.

So funny that you mentioned the packs... I'm already trying to figure out what to do for him during sports, and at night, etc....

Don't worry about having trouble with the carb counting and all that. Half of it is we're just afraid of messing up. I was lucky (if that's word for it) because I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with Alden, so I had to learn to count carbs and check my glucose then. Funny, I never figured diabetes would enter my life again.

Keep up the good work. Nina.
