Hi this is a wonderful site. Already have found so much information here. My son is 10 and was diagnosed with T1, Sept. 6, 05. A sad day for us all, but I am thankful that he had no complications and is now adjusting to taking his multiple shots a day. He is still "honeymooning" with some remainder beta cells and hopefully that will continue for a while so that he doesn't have to use as much insulin and his carb/ratio is 1/50 for breakfact 1/40 lunch and dinner and 1/50 for bedtime. That gives us a lot of wiggle room for eating without needing to take an insulin shot for every meal right now. I am a working Mom so haven't had time to find local support groups to attend. Am trying to get involved with JD events around town. My son loved the JD Halloween Carnival (loved getting Free Glucose Monitors and lancing devices to try!)... : ) Thanks for listening and hope we can chat about our lovely children real soon.
