"I'm sorry, I'm T2, not a parent of a T1 and I certainly was not diagnosed as a teen. But I would like to make two suggestions. First, in 2011, I met a therapist in DC. Her name is Jody Brand Levine (http://diabetestherapyandmore.com) and…"

Teens who don't test

Hi everyone, my 14 year (9th grade) son is not testing as he should and I just am at a loss as to how to make him do this. He wears an omni pod but when it expires he'll let it go and do shots until he feels like putting one on. I have tried nagging him which seems to only make it worse. He saw a therapist recommended by his doctor who pretty much gave him license to not test. She said as long as he saw his endo yearly they would catch anything that was happening! She also said I shouldn't bug…See More

Lisa, I was just curious, you mentioned your son knocked his pod off during a game, my son is not super athletic and he is ussually close to home but did you change it immediately or let him finish the game knowing he probably wouldn't get into to much trouble in an hour or two of vigorous play. Obviously if Jacob wasn't active at the time we would change it right away but say we were hiking, he would be really upset if we neeed to change his pod immediately. Just got me thinking ....have a good week. Amy
