We are hosting an exchange student with T1D. She arrived yesterday. Along with the general "getting to know each other" time, we talked about diabetes care. I had put together a basket for her bedside that included juice boxes, smarties, dehydrated fruit bits and peanut butter crackers. She smiled and had a hardy thank you. Then she asked, "How do I tell you I am - what you say low?" I responded just say, "I'm low." Then she said, "I can get really mean." I assured her that I was quite familiar with moodiness with low BG. I told her that when our daughter is mean to us or her siblings, I tell her to check her BG and "you better be low!" She laughed and said, "That's what my mom says too!" She handed me her glucagon and smiled. She welcomes middle of the night checks because they check at her house too. At supper, I asked her if she counts sugars/carbs or has a fixed dose of insulin. She picked up her cell phone and checked a translation app and responded, "I guess them". Ah ha moment - Diabetes is universal!!!
