1) Did anyone else's child have grades falls/struggles in the time leading up to diagnosis? I haven't seen much talk of that and Kelly has really struggled in the last 3 months. 2) What was your child's a1c at time of diagnosis? Kelly's was 11.6%. I'm starting to wonder if the uncontrolled diabetes really was a problem in regards to school and his grades. It sure seems like it would be, but I'm not seeing any posts about struggling with grades prior to diagnosis. Thanks friends.
