Hi folks. DS1 has a problem with skin infections. He can get just a standard scrape (from hitting the pavement from his bike, etc.) and it will get red and infected. This also happens unless we are very vigilant on the areas of his pump sites. I don't suspect any kind of diabetic neuropathy, the condition that generally leads to wounds and infections in older diabetics. I'm just wondering if anyone else has a type 1 kid with this issue. Or if you've read anything about it? I'm wondering if it is a side effect of blood chemistry that is a little off. Whenever we do a full blood panel the numbers are slightly off the recommended ranges but never to the concern of our pediatrician or endo. FWIW, the pediatric endo does not think the infections are diabetes related. The pediatrician DOES. Of the two, I trust the diabetes info from the endo obviously but our pediatrician is very experienced and knowledgeable. Any BTDT or read any pertinent material?
