Yes dylan was told a few times by the physiologist to tell people but hes not interested, most kids assume if u have diabetes it means your fat so he doesnt want to hear that even though hes not fat. School haven't been fab to be honest, in the early days he said he would rather be dead than keep going this but thankfully that's gone now. Honestly give her time it's a lot to accept. Dont know how u found out but dylan was nearly in a diabetic coma and they was talking about brain damage at first luckily he was fine but it was a stressful time for all. Carb counting is a pain but it gets easier and like second nature. I'm here if u need anything xxHay Dylans mum
Its so hard with teenagers my daughter has been told by the diabetes psycholoist she needs to tell friends she didn't like that.but i dont think she will even be back school till September. I think maybe we should lay off her a little and give her time to process. Im so sorry your son thinks he will get bullied if he tells someone at school. Has the school not suggested anything to help him. They both need to realise its nothing to be ashamed of its part of them. Oh my this is deffo a coffee and cake chat lol if you need to chat anything over please message me. Im knew to this myself but two heads and all that. Take care Hayley xx
Sorry to hear about your daughter‘s hypos @Hayley130Hi Hi my daughter is 13 and been diagnosed with type 1 two days before lock down how is your son in coming to terms with everything, telling friends ect. My daughter is only getting phone calls from everyone due to covid. She suffers with hypos but dont always recognise them. Its hard i know.
I think with the information about the good it would definitely be worth asking about a Libre. It will make things easier for you both, as you can easily monitor glucose levels with just a swipe of the reader or her phone over the sensor. So much easier and as it shows the direction in which glucose levels are going alongside the actual reading it is a lot easier to head of lows and highs before they become a problem. It is also a lot less obtrusive doing the tests.Hi thebearcametoo
Thanks for your advice Shes had 13 hypos so far this month is that high ?. But shes had a few days where shes been fine no hypos at all. She has a free biscuit (no insulin) if her glucose level is below 7 at bed time and this seems to help with night hypos. And it works well for her . Il deffo try the 10g free. And believe me i need all the advice i can get still a learner deffo. Thanks Hayley
