Some people just don't care. I thought it was God-send that one of the moms form ~K's school knew what T1D was because her husband was diagnosed at 24. However, they were only "obsessed" about it for a year and then decided they had to "live life". They still pretty much eat healthy at home, but I know he drinks and really doesn't count carbs, test much, etc. So I wonder what his A1Cs are. A friend's former girlfriend's parents didn't care much about her diabetes (type 1), but when she reached teen years and adulthood, she kept a tight control on her BGs. She was always on the lookout for the best endo so, whether good or bad, she kept changing endos. I'm just praying that ~K will care enough for herself as a teenager and later on as an adult... to manage her ~D well.
