Discussion in 'Parents of Children with Type 1' started by Becky Stevens mom, Jul 2, 2011.
Just turned 13.
DD was just over 5 1/2. As you can see from my signature, the diagnosis came on dh's birthday.
Anastasiya was 4 -5. a few months away from turning 5.
My daughter was 10....one month before her 11th birthday.
My sister was 5.
One week after her 7th birthday.
Andrew was dx'd 3 weeks before his 12th birthday
Hanna was 10, she was one of 4 kids dxd at her school that yr, it was a school for grades 5 and 6.
Oooh...thanks for doing this!
Zoee was dx'd at 18months and it was the actual day she turned 18months old.
matt was a month shy of his 8th birthday, so I said 8, as he had it, we just didnt know it.
Would you mind sharing, how many children are in that school?
Just wondering if it is a very large school, because it seems like four children dxd in one year in a school of two grades seems like a lot.
My daughter was three at diagnosis.
Seth was dx'd two months before he turned 8.
Diagnosis, 4 years and one month.
Just passed our 6 year mark.
Between 2 & 3. It was 3 weeks before his 3rd birthday.
My son was almost 5 months old, and I was 18 months old.
18 months old...
Our whole town is in school together by 5th grade. There are probably an average of 300 kids per grade. When Hanna was dxd, she was the last of the 4, there were 3 5th graders and a 6th grader. It was considered pretty unusual. Now there are 4 in Hannas grade as another boy moved into the 7/8 school last year.
Hanna is going to high school next year, the nurse told me she has 2currently in the school and 4 coming in.
Andy was diagnosed Type 1 @ 18 weeks old, but rediagnosed at 21 months old with Neonatal Diabetes.
Katie was diagnosed practically at birth (personally I knew it when she started dropping in percentile for weight during the third trimester when I was pregnant). Unofficially diagnosed by a doctor at 10 days old and officially at 3 weeks when the DNA test confirmed the same mutation as her brother.
My DD was 4 1/2 at dx. Oddly enough, my sister-in-law was also dx at 4 1/2.
I could only vote once...between 1 & 2 for Lilly (23 months).
Ben was 9, just 2 weeks shy of his 10th birthday.
