Hello, I am writting for my daughter who was just diagnosed with type 1 on Jan. 13th. (She is about to turn 12) She was interested in this message board but doesn't really know what to write. I think it helps for her to know that she is not alone. She is adjusting well to the insulin shots and blood testing. She is fealing so much better but is worried because she is loosing a lot of hair and she is gaining weight . I told her her body is getting what it needs now but maybe she has to hear that from others. Any advice for her? The smily face is from her!
