New forum - parents whose kids are in college
This forum is for parents who have kids with type 1 who are in college -- or perhaps even older. We're no longer worried about school nurses and sleepovers -- we're worried about kids living on their own, the pressures of dorm or apartment living, insurance, jobs, etc.
Here's a place to discuss our issues.
My daughter Marissa, now 20, will begin her third year of nursing school in a couple weeks (her school starts late). She lives on campus with two roommates. While my wife and I do worry about her diabetes care, she has done exceptionally well: A1c's in the very low 6s (6.1 last). She checks very frequently (more than 10 times per day) and almost every night.
