Now, now,:cwds: once again I'll point out that this is NOT what my endo said. I can even sympathize with your fear that some parent may take it that way, but it is emphatically NOT what he said. That's a strawman argument, and those are never useful when really trying to get to the truth. How about if they said it like this, the older a kid gets the more important it is to bring the BG into a range closer to that of nondiabetics. Would that be palatable ?
