Just got back from dentist for myself. Long story short, my dentist and I got into a long conversation about my lack of sleep due to having to checking DD 2-3 times during the night. She commented to me that she has never heard other D-parents (patients of hers) who get up to check in the middle of the night (part of our conversation involved me saying that my dental routine is not as good as it was due to erratic sleep patterns and routines). So she was just curious why we get up so many times. She goes on to mention that she has many D patients and D patient's parents and none of them mention sleep issues which lead her to think getting up in the night is uncommon. Really!?!? Is this online community the only ones that are diligent in this area? My DH's co-worker who has a D child also mentions that they DO NOT check in the night... in fact he commented to DH that "oh his liver will dump glucose in the night if he goes too low"!!! Mind you, this boy's A1C has never been lower than 9% I am just baffled why any parent would allow their child to not have optimal health when they have the control to do something about it. P.S. My dentist is doing some sort of sleep study with her patients and using info from study to recommend night mouth guard, etc. so she is in tune with her patient's sleep habits. Yes, my health is suffering in many aspects, but for me it is worth it!
