I posted this on the General discussion when I probably should have posted it over here. My son has been Dx diabetic for a year now and this whole time I've been looking for support groups, classes, parents of D children but have not had much luck finding help and support in my county. I finally got word from JDRF in New York city that this forum could help and boy has it opened my eyes to how much I dont know about my sons disease. I thought I was pretty well versed in diabetes growing up with a diabetic father. I'm versed enough to be maintaing my sons A1C level @ 7.7 which is still a little higher than it should be but not too bad for newly diagnosed according to our Endo. I have been reading through alot of the different topics like Illness and mixing glucogon and insulin, meter readings of 120 two hours after eating, keytones with low blood sugar? I dont get those kinds of readings 2 hours after my son eats (not even close) is it a pump vs injection thing? I didnt know he could have keytones with low blood sugar or is that only during illnesses? If the glucogon is used in emergency situations to bring a low up and insulin keeps the levels from being to high are they using them together to maintain a certain level during the illness? I havent encountered alot of these things and I'd like to be prepared just in case. I obviously need some support and guidance.
