Profile Information

The PRIMARY person in my life who has diabetes has
Type 1 or type 1.5 (LADA) diabetes
How do you hope to benefit from TuDiabetes?
I hope to hear some real life ways of dealing with my toddler's type 1 diabetes. The terrible 2 in combo with type 1 diabetes is kicking our buts... We were doing so good with all his numbers up untill a couple months ago and now we can't seem to level back out! We were using a low carb diet method to keep his numbers stable and were constantly decreasing in insulin dose amounts but now he's all over the place!
Date diagnosed
August 28, 2012
Most recent HbA1C %, date of result (optional)
6.7
Type of treatment/devices you use
Shots
Tell us more about you (optional)
My husband and I are a young couple (I am 23) with a 2 year old son who was diagnosed 2 weeks before his 2nd b-day (also 2 weeks after our wedding)... so it's been a long year.. We try to keep Travis to a low carb diet, we are supervised by a great naturapathic dr out of wpg who specializes in children with type 1 diabetes. We have always believed in not feeding him junk or simple sugars (the only white bread ever in our house was "daddies")so to feed him a low carb diet wasn't that big a change...

We're so happy that you're finally here!
Welcome home Travis' Mom ♥ fellow Canadian!
The reason for no longer having good BG readings, might be that Travis' "honeymoon" phase has come to an end.
This is a great place to share, to learn, and to grow...all the while meeting new people world wide, and making friends.
