Hello, This may be a depressing thread, but I wanted to know from some of the parents with children who have had D for a while to let us know about your complications. The organisation that may be supplying us with a hypo dog was telling me about a few of the other D patients that have dogs. One was diagnosed just 2 years ago and she is 24 now. She has to go on a kidney dialysis every week now and has had her eyes lasered twice. I don't think that she is taking good care of herself, though... I'm scared, but I do need to face reality, I suppose. Thanks.
