I don't think I will ever get over feeling upset when I read comments like this. Yes, I do understand that there are certain challenges trying to manage diabetes in very young children, and yes I agree wild fluctuations in bg levels are not good (for any age), but for a doctor to advise parents to purposely let their children have prolonged high bg levels, to me is just negligence. A doctor once described to me what the effect of high blood sugar was on the body by saying it is like having a bunch of little glass shards floating around in the blood stream and travelling to all the organs in the body. I have never forgotten that image. So instead of simply telling parents to run their child's bg high, how about putting in the extra work to figure out ways to address the highs while still mitigating the risks of going too low? It can be done. So why aren't they doing it? Are they just trying to cover their ass? Is it just laziness? Do they think they are making it easier on the parents? Whatever their "reasoning" is, I don't agree with it.
