Hi--I haven't been on here lately but realize how much I miss the info! Does anyone know if giving a child with diabetes Melatonin for sleep issues is safe? Lindsay has the hardest time falling asleep at night--once she is asleep she sleeps great but sometimes it takes her 2-3 hours to fall asleep. She has become extremely grumpy and irritable so I am determined to fix this and give her something to get her body back into a rythm of falling asleep at a decent time. I searched the internet and read somewhere that there is a warning on some bottles of Melatonin that it shouldn't be given to anyone with an autoimmune disease, but I don't know why. I do plan on asking our doc before I try it but just wondered if anyone had anymore insight into it. And what has anyone else done to help their child fall asleep at night? By the way she is 11, almost 12 years old.
