Hi. I found this site a couple of days ago. My first time posting. My 10 y.o. son was diagnosed Oct 26, 2011. It was quite a blow at first, but we are adjusting and learning everyday. It's been 3 months now, feels like forever, but yet feels like yesterday. So much to learn. We are on injections- Humalog and Lantus. We have an appointment Friday with the GI clinic to see if he has Celiac disease as well. My main question is diet related. He is not on any kind of restricted diet. We count carbs. If he wants something, we just cover it with insulin. I know his is a growing boy, but that doesn't seem right. Is that normal with all of you? If he does eat carbs for snacks, I try to pair it with protein as well. What kind of diet have you found to most successful? Also, when did you start using a pump? Thanks so much!
