    I asked for a meeting with the guidance counselor to go over items on notations on my son's school record. He asked if we could do the annual 504 review also (past three years that has been a 2 minute process.)

    Now he has a post 504 meeting with all my son's teachers and my son, my husband and myself or so I find out this morning. I know they are concerned about missed class time and I'm trying to go into this with an open mind.

    I use to have a chart that they handed out at Children's hospital Fresno that lined up A1C with reduced risk for better numbers. I called them this morning (now that I'm in a frenzy :eek: ) but they cannot process to fax it to me this morning.

    TIA!

    I know Darryl has some good links in his signature line. There may be something there that can help.

    I have not presented this type of data to the school before. What do you hope it is going to help with? Just wondering.

    They faxed it to me!

    They faxed it to me but I didn't really need it.

    I scanned and tried to upload but it was too big. Will have hubby or 15 yo help me figure out and will post later.

    I love this chart!!!

    Chris is referring to the DCCT, same as Jeff posted above. I would add this study which has a graph showing the relationship of not only A1C but also variability to complications: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sour...OQ0TRTA9nPZvcZacA&sig2=lGTQHVf6MLCOfE6YccgNNQ

    The message in this is that not only should BG kept as low as safely possible, but that BG should be checked often and adjusted often to avoid large excursions. Ideally, this means checking and correcting at intervals equal to the action time: If taking an insulin correction, every 2-3 hours; if taking carbs, about an hour after the carbs are eaten to see if the carb intake was sufficient.

    Thank you all for quick responses

    Sitting in the 504 meeting with 5 out of 7 of his teachers made me realize they have #no idea# how his blood sugar affects his ability to concentrate.
    Wish I could be the emergency broadcast buzzing noise during the meeting so they could understand maybe what a high blood glucose feels like. :cwds:

    I don't post often here but I read and sympathize with the many struggles of being a parent of a CWD. I am so blessed to have this community and website in my corner.

    Thank you all!

    Jen
