My son was dx at 4 years old. Although he is getting taller, he has barely gained any weight since dx...he's now 7. He is pretty skinny now, and I am wondering when he will start to gain weight. I'd like to start him on the CGM, but he has no fat to pinch for sensor insertion...some use arms...but he doesn't have much there either!
Going to the pediatrician later this month and will be bringing this up with him.
