Diabetes Type 1 Support Group

Childhood","Childhood diabetes is when the pancreas in a child does not produce enough insulin on its own. In order to survive, insulin injections need to be incorporated as well as diet regulation. If your child is diagnosed with diabetes, find support and share your experiences here. Caring for a child with diabetes is challenging. We're here for you."

    my 24 yr old w/type 1

    1
    Hi,My son has had T1 since he was 11. He is 24 now. He has not taken care of it since he's been around 17 and I no longer managed it. His A1c is usually around 11%. He doesn't even have an endo now. I've tried everything to get him to pay attention to it. I guess I'm just venting but it is so sad to me that he will most likely have major health issues in his 40's. His thoughts are that he is not...

    Hello my name is Michelle. I have a 14year old son that has had t1 diebates for almost 4 years now . I thought he was mentally ok with dealing with it until today. Today he told me it isn't fair and he shouldn't have to deal with this and why did it matter about checking and correcting his sugar because he wouldn't live to see 50 .  It breaks my heart to know that he feels this way. So my...

    High blood sugar and ketones

    Ok to I'm on a pump and the catheter came out when I was sleeping.  Now I have high blood sugar (333) and large ketones. I'm not feeling sick so I'm not heading to the ER unless I start vomiting or have abdominal pain. Obviously it has come on because I wasn't getting any insulin from my pump. I am getting a cold also.I've had this disease for 42 year and I'm 47. I haven't had ketones in years...

    Worried About My Daughter

    2
    Hi! I'm a new user, and I see that this group may not be especially active lately, but I'll give it a shot. I am worried about my 24-year-old daughter. She was diagnosed with Type 1 when she was 8, and as you all know, it's been hard - especially for her. She is now living far away, but she visited for about two months recently. While she was here, I began to suspect (with good reason) an eating...

    Frustrated with Diabetes

    4
    I have been diagnosed with T1D since Dec 2015 - So it’s been about 15 months now and I am more lost in anger and depression than ever. People who are not in the trenches of diabetes do not understand - they simply don't. Words cannot explain the frustration. Not understanding how "you need to eat health and take care of yourself" doesn't really feel like love when you hear it from everyone who...

    Hello Everyone,I have been diabetic for 16 years which I was diagnosed when I was 12 years old. I am now 28 years old and it never gets any easier for me especially with weight loss.
