    Thank you for all the info Brenda. Yeah, I am just learning about celiac by reading the forum hear and some of the books I have also include some info on this, I just wanted to take one thing at a time. LOL! I sure hope he doesn't come down with anything else, but I guess none of us would be on this site if we could choose. Well, thanks again and take care. Nice to meet you, Brenda.

    Was looking at your profile to see where you live to see if I might know a therapist there, but I do not. Noticed you said you did not know what celiac is (per your profile). Celiac disease is an allergy to wheat gluten. Another autoimmune disease, it can happen to those with type 1. Make sure your diabetes team does a TTG test (transglutaminase) maybe once a year (every year, every two years--ask them about the frequency of testing). It's just a blood test. If positive, some opt for a confirmatory endoscopy, but that's a pain. I have heard that the blood test is pretty accurate (a positive is a high number--just heard a teen say hers was 800, which is very high). If you are interested, we, CWD, hold an annual conference in July in Orlando Friends for Life), at which we offer free celiac testing. Preliminary info will be on this site in a month. Dates are July 5-10. There should be scholarships through the Diabetes Scholars Foundation (check in Jan) to help pay the conference fee.

    Hi, sorry, check in every once in a pretty long while, I don't write on the forum any more, and didn't see you'd left a message until now. We're doing fine, hope you are all doing great, miss you all and thanks so much for checking in!

    Jonah that is very interesting, thank you. I will try it again. Really had enough of looking at the CGM in the morning and seeing overnight #'s between 100 and 120 with no alarm.

    Hey Darryl, I was thinking about how calibrating 20 mg/dl lower wasn't working and it occurred to me- you'd need to calibrate a percentage lower and calculate it that way in order to have it be consistent, not an absolute number lower. The G4 does its calibrations with a best fit ratio based on the latest three calibrations (which are matched to SG from fifteen minutes before the calibration- I think), according to their published data.

    May I ask which endocrinology practice you go to? I am looking to move back to Illinois / Wisconsin to be closer to family, and my ultimate career goal is to be a CDE in a pedi endo clinic, so I'm trying to network and connect with anyone I can at local practices.

    HI Joretta,

    Can you email it to me please?
    Thank you!!

    WittsEnd... I believe your best course of action is to go to a family therapist. It's usually not my first response..but when we attended the Friends for Life conference this year I met two wonderful therapists who were also diabetes educators and they work with families dealing with issues involving chronic conditions. You might want to search for this kind of therapist. I don't believe any child should have therapy by themselves but go through it with one or both parents and possibly with siblings as well. Hope things improve.

    Sometimes with out-of-control yeast infections within the body, the fugus can release toxins that affect the brain and behavior. With the high sugar issues of diabetes, it might be a possible cause of some of the behaviors.
