I agree, I have the utmost respect those who feel differently then I do. Which is the main reason I did not quote or pick sides with some of the others post. (Please dont take that as me having a problem with you commenting on mine, because I do not) I do not think that his life is going to be worse, my DS has a hard time with his D, very hard to control, high isf's, totally unstable. I truly hope that changes with age. But if he is like my mom it will stay the same, as he grows I am glad that your son has a great life, and truly hope that his life stays as normal and healthy as possible!! I do know from growing up with it, and dealing with it with my son. It is not the same as living without D. There is always going to be a difference. Some days worse the others, and I am hoping that most of them will be wonderful and amazing. I do know that some of them will not be. Things have changed alot of over the years, but there are still problems and complications. Our life was good, but it was never easy, and D was one of the main issues. Diabetes will not hold back out lives. But it will be a challange!
