"We are also limited to my son's butt. He won't let us touch his upper thighs after the one time we did it and he cried like crazy, and he doesn't have nearly enough meat on him to use his abdomen."

Help with getting a type 1 kid gain weight

Hi everyone my son just turned 6 and is a little guy. My husband and I are both short so I don't expect him to be big. He's very muscular and his doctors aren't overly concerned, they figure he's just genetically skinny. When I look at him though he is just way too bony for my liking. He needs a little more meat on his bones. I (not diabetic) had a lot of trouble gaining weight as a kid.

Hi Jake's Mom,

I recently joined Tu and looking for people in this area with Type 1 to start a support group or every now and then meet up. Or maybe you already have leads to one. I love this site but would like to have personal contacts to discuss our daily solutions on dealing with diabetes. Just a thought. Let me know if you are interested. I live in Mt. Washington and love the city but would be willing to travel wherever.

Dee:)
