Hi, my son was diagnosed Type 1 this last summer at 10 years old. Fast forward some months and we are thinking he should be on a pump. I mentioned this to our clinic that we work with and I am told there is a wait list of kids who are wanting to go on the pump.
I have no idea of this means. Anyone out there with Kaiser and a Type 1 child? We have an appt next week so I guess we will find out.
Yesterday we opened up about how diabetes can bring us down. Today let’s share what gets us through a hard day. Or more specifically, a hard diabetes day. Is there something positive you tell yourself? Are there mantras that you fall back on to get you through? Is there something specific you do when your mood needs a boost? Maybe we've done that and we can help others do it too?

It’s Thankgiving week. This used to be one of my favorite holidays because it was the one time out of the entire year where you could eat whatever your heart desired and no one said a thing. That was until I became diabetic. Now, during this old favorite holiday people comment on how much I’m eating or give me a look. For those of you who are still going through the emotions of this holiday, I want to give you some encouragement, that you are not alone, and some tips on how to give yourself…Continue

The question has come up "When do you know it's time for your child to see the doctor on their own" Here's our diabetes tidbit on what we do. Please feel free to share with your communities
One of my biggest fears is that even though we try to prepare for everything there will be a time when I am not with Nikki and she will have a low blood sugar. If that's not bad enough a low blood sugar without a fast acting sugar can really go bad. Here's what Nikki did

On this past weekend I was not active in the normal sense that I would be active during work within the week. At work I work 8 hours and lift boxes all day working with the body for 8 hours in physical exercise which can be quite strenuous at times. At this time I do not need much insulin at all to counterbalance the sugar produced from the digestion of the food that I consume during break, but this changes quite dramatically as I am on my days off.
This weekend I needed quite a lot…Continue

My chemistry teacher made a quick comment about how when one consumes sugar, it paralyses the immune system for x amount of time. This was fascinating to hear, because diabetics are known to have a weak immune system - so I've done some reading and this is the best site that I've found for it at…Continue
