I'm a parent of a type one diabetic I also have type one diabetes as well my son is 21 yrs old was diagnosed at 9 yrs old. He was very responsible in the care of his diabetes at such a young age however he has gotten so far off track I'm so sick w worry . He is currently on an insulin pump but doesn't check his sugar often maybe once a day he bolouses on a guess so therefore his sugar is always high.The more I gently remind him of how important it is for him to check his sugar or take his insulin he responds by telling me he is grown and I don't need to tell him what to do . His past a1c was 11 which is really high. He currently has diabetic retinopathy not severe enough to require surgery but has been warned that he needs to get his sugar under control asap . It seems the more I tell him to please take care of himself the more he resists I'm totally heartbroken watching my son destroy his body and I can't do anything about it . I see a therapist weekly who recommends that I back off and not tell him anything regarding his diabetes but how can I pretend it doesn't bother me ? Please any feedback will be appreciated!
