Cool article. I find monogenic diabetes quite fascinating.
I do dislike how articles keep calling insulin injections "painful." I guess more dramatic that way.
Actually it was "insertion" sites for her pump. And Yes my dd would agree, they are painful.
Wow - that is one lucky girl...
I have never heard of this form of diabetes before and how it came to light is we were just at Sick Kids for my 6 year olds check up and the doctor suggested we have Bretts DNA tested ! His Blood work is being sent to UK England and it should take about 3 months for us to get Bretts results?This is how we have just found out about this Monogenic diabetes ??? Brett was 6 months old when he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes so he could of been misdiagnosed ??? This would be a miricle to our family if he could take medication for his pancreas??? A little over whelming I guess to hear all this and a little scared as well ! Any info you could share from your experience would be much appreciated! Sincerely Lorrie Roberts
