Hi everyone, my son Max is 6 years old and diagnosed on December 5th. After a month of "tummy aches" our pediatrician did a urine dip and found 3+ glucose. Then a finger stick showed a blood sugar of 550! Felt like someone punched me in the stomach! He had been drinking more, but I never put the two together! We spent 2 days in the hospital and it has been a roller coaster ride since. This "honeymoon" period they talk about stinks. His sugars aren't really stabilized and trying to measure these small amounts of insulin is hard. I hope at some point it gets more evened out! I know we were super lucky to be diagnosed so quickly and without anything horrible happening but it is scary. Luckily my husband and I have a medical background (I am a labor and delivery nurse and he is an internal medicine PA) this has helped but does not make us experts. I hope to learn a lot from everyone and share some too!
