Yes u was right its children he wont tell as he doesn't trust anyone or like anyone enough. He believes they will call him fat because most children's perception is diabetes is for fat people.

That’s sad - the not liking or trusting anyone enough. He might be right about the ‘fat’ thing but that’s just ignorance and lazy reporting by the media. I guess he’s the only one in the school with Type 1? When I tell people I have Type 1 diabetes, I usually give them a very brief explanation including the auto-immune bit.

Yes, I’ve noticed a surprising amount of ‘teasing’ aka nastiness in secondary schools. I don’t know if it’s a teen thing or if it’s actually got worse recently. If there’s an atmosphere like that at his school, then I get his reluctance to tell people. Perhaps that might change as he gets older.

Hi this may be a total coincidence but even before my daughters diagnosis she has ongoing tummy problems. Sometimes keeled over in pain. After pestering the gp time and time again and being told it was anything from constipation to a form of epilepsy?? she was finally diagnosed with severe stomach ulcers caused by a sitting infection in her intestines (which I believe to be the cause of her type1) She has since been tested for food intolerances also and turns out she has a sever intolerance to cows milk. So we carb count and have a free from diet! The joys! :) x

Well viral gastric probs were though by some researchers to be a possible cause of T1 in 1972 cos I was cross examined about one of those I'd had in the February - but it's never yet been proved what actually does it, or how.

I hope you get some answers soon and your little one is feeling better. So keep me updated if issues turn out to be similar. Those tests are what finally revealed Harper s problems. But as well as you, unfortunately, it took a long time.
