Dear parents, I am writing here mainly because I have no where to turn.. I know that I am not the only parent of a Type 1 diabetes child who panicky every time her other child goes to the bathroom more often or gets another glass of water... I thought it was going to get easier, but it is not... I am driving my kids and my DH completely crazy. I spend those few nights when my CGM is not beeping with highs and lows researching stuff about potential cure, life expectancy of type 1 kids diagnosed as babies, their IQ (riiiight...) and siblings risk of getting this dreadful disease... Nobody even my close family and friends can understand me... I don't know how to deal with it. I had that terrible scare with my 4 year old when I got a sporadic 266 on the meter result and then a couple of other high readings back in February, but then I did a 15 min "sugar challenge" like one mom here recommended and he seemed to be ok (120-130) range. I check him once a month after dinner and he usually runs in 120-130 range. Is that normal? Is diabetes brewing inside him? Who knows... Would you say that since he has not gotten worse since February we can safely assume he is ok for now? I checked it again two days ago after a fruit salad and it was 189 and then rechecked 5 min later and it was125... So you have to wonder about the accuracy of the results... Did you parents of non diabetic kids ever get readings that high for no reason? Do you think that since we have given enough time after that dreadful day when he had 166 and 266 readings we can let it go since he would have shown symptoms otherwise? Most importantly, how do you lead a normal life and let your kids have a normal life? Sorry for the long post and thank you for reading.
