MsShelly replied to Shant's discussion 'Tired of DKA' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"Have you considered getting him on a continuous glucose monitor such as a Dexcom? Sometimes this can help with spotting patterns of high BG at the very least it could alert you when his BG is rising to much. Hope you figure this out. Bless you."
