"I agree with the comments about full vs. 1/2 units. My son used 1/2 units until he was 7 or 8 (dx at 20 months)and now that he is pumping, of course uses increments of units still. We are 10 years in to T1D and in the last 2 weeks, we are having…"
"A very wise and experienced parent of a young adult daughter with T1D, often reminds people that we need to remember that T1D is not the root of every issue our children have. It is such a natural tendency to wonder if things happen or are made…"
"We don't have the new pod yet, but my son (12) has been on the pod since he was 7. The only times it has been knocked off was when he did it himself, coming around a corner and knocking into the door jamb or getting out from under a table and…"
"Yes! Our son had an experience like that when he was about 5. It was like what I hear night terrors described as. It took nearly 10 minutes for him to 'wake up' and he really didn't remember the incident at all.
Lows at night, I…"
"Yikes! A smattering of that reality could be helpful in a 'learn from my mistakes' kind of way, but I'm guessing it was a lot more than that. I think this is a bit of human nature. I can remember at my baby showers, people would dish…"
"Totally understand. My son was dx at 20 months, so I understand exactly how you feel. Those toddler years are so volatile in BGs on a normal day, and add illness and it can be maddening/scary/exhausting!
I will tell you that as they get older,…"
"My son has had T1D for 10 years, starting at 20 months. Up until the last 6 months or so we made changes quite frequently. He is now nearly 12 (in two weeks) and I have noticed in the last 6 months we have not changed a lot. Strange because he is…"
"We JUST did this with my son. In his case it was because he has suddenly grown in a'certain area' and the doctore wanted to be sure he wasn't farther along in his bone growth than he should have been. The x-ray was easy and pretty…"
"My son drinks Gatorade throughout his swim practice. This was suggested by our CDE and it has worked really well. Snacks that we use before swim are milk (in the juice box type cartons), peanut butter and jelly crackers, yogurt, salami cheese and…"
