Welcome, mom! Here is the Group for Parents of kids with type 1

http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/parentsofkidswithtype1

how old is your daughter? She can join on her own here if she is 13. I can tell you our site is closely monitored to keep out any suspicious activity, and to keep things PG13. As Doris told you, we have a Great Group for teens. Things have changed a lot in diabetes care in the 42 years I've had it. We have had a lot of births recently from some of our type 1 moms. Leave a comment on my page if you have any concerns or questions about the community, or diabetes in general.

Please start her an account up! Here she will meet kids like her or older who will help her lots with the feelings she's having right now! How far is she from her 13th birthday? There is a group here for diabetic teens.
