    Hello! I am happy to find a site that has a support system for parents to children of diabetics. My name is Julie and I have 2 children with type 1 diabetes. Megan my thirteen yr old was diagnosed at 11 months and Skyler my 2 yr old was diagnosed at 8 months old.

    I am looking for friends who can give me advice, can help me understand my teen as she struggles and can help give me insight into this disease.

    Thanks again!

    Welcome Julie. I am glad you found us. I am sure it is hard having two children with Type 1.

    I hope to learn more.

    Welcome! This site is amazing for support and learning. I have 2 daughter with type 1 as well. One is a teen and all I can say is ...ugh. Just kidding, we have good days and bad days, but teens can be just buggers without D. Throw hormones in with a high or low...and a she-devil can be created! My youngest is 11...so soon I'll have 2 hormonal D daughters to deal with! The CGMS has made my life so much easier! Looking forward to getting to know you!

    Hi Julie, welcome to the forums. I have two children with diabetes both diagnosed as infants. Have you had them tested for Monogenic Diabetes? It's pretty rare for those dx over 6 months, but most doctors check just in case since they have found some. Something to think about.

    Fairly new, too!

    Hi Julie. I found this site recently myself. I have 3 daughters, Alaina 9, Novalee 8, & Serenity 7. Serenity, was diagnosed 2 months ago, the day before Thanksgiving, just before her birthday. I also grew up with an older brother who was diagnosed with type 1 when he was 3 and his daughter was diagnosed four years ago just before her 9th birthday. My cousin's son also has type 1. So I wasn't thrown into this completely in the dark, but it is quite different when you deal with it on a daily basis. This site and it's wonderful members have already helped me cope. Welcome to the club. :)
