Hi Everyone! My name is Ashley and I have a 3 year old son, Javeyn, and a 5 year old, Gage. We just found out about a month ago that Javeyn has type 1 diabetes. He was drinking and urinating excessively. We kept questioning what was going on with him, but I thought that as a 3 year old, he was just doing normal things - like wanting to drink! So, I brought him to the doctor to find out that this is what he had. We spent four days at the hospital here in New Orleans. I decided to sign up on this website yesterday afternoon to try to ease my mind by communicating with other parents. This has been an emotional rollercoster for me so far. We have been struggling with his sugars. It seems that he did fine the first week or so after the hospital visit, but now they are just all over the place. I have been researching some different meal ideas and a friend of mine even went out to purchase me a cook book for diabetics. I make sure that I am feeding him everything within his carb limits. I am not sure if certain foods are having an effect on his body, or if this can just be from his body being new to the diabetes. Any suggestions?
