Hi there, my son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on the 28th of August this year after being rushed into hospital at the point of collapse. The nurses and doctors were wonderful and after a few hours he picked up. My son and I are now trying to newly manage his sugar and insulin levels. He gets very frustrated and often ends up in tears with this process. Can anyone tell me if the initial whirl calms down? I must admit, I'm finding things quite rough too but we're coping together. Thank you, Clare Patterson - and Harry.
