Started this discussion. Last reply by Erin Huff Carper Jan 20, 2012. 22 Replies

About 6 months before my son was diagnosed, he was sick with a weird viral illness that made him look like he had the mumps. His poor little cheeks were so swollen for about 12 hours then it just…Continue

"@emmasmom - a statin is a drug given to lower cholestrol. @marnie - thanks for your answer, the cardiologist is given us a 3 month period to get BS undercontrol and has my son increase exercise to 40 mins cardio daily. I guess we sill see."

My son was diagnosed at the age of 9 1/2 with TD1. We have had great endocrinologists help us along this journey. My son is actually doing great with his control. What I thought was great was that our endo's have always stressed that is is a kid first! He just happens to have diabetes.

Hi linda, I thought I would reply to your pump question here as it may be a longer post! our boys seem to be similar just from the little bit I see about yours. Jacob was diag at 10 and he never wanted to pump but changed his mind at 12 he saw an omnipod video and was hooked, I feel the new generation is a lot better! we rarely have errors now. Jacob never wanted a tubed pump. the most important thing is what your son wants, i honestly used to feel that omnipod was less reliable( not by our personal experience) than other pumps and had lots of frustrations but since the newer one came out it really is going well. let me know if you have any specific questions, good luck with what ever you decide. oh Jacob is now 15 and not the typical 'noncompliant diabetic teen' super responsible and taking things in stride. happy mom, ( on most days of course there is still the challenging days and the worry, but better!) best wishes, amy
