Our 9yo daughter was diagnosed Type 1 almost two weeks ago after going into DKA. It came on so suddenly and was very scary. So we are just at the very beginning of our journey. Her blood sugars are still not close to our target number, and adjustments are constantly being made. We are still in a fog and trying to breathe, but also are trying to learn what we can so we can keep our daughter healthy. We have 7 other children at home, along with 2 married. They all have been very supportive and caring towards their sister. So now we are trying to figure the best ways to eat, be active, manage daily life and outings, and obtain supplies for the best price. Any advice or helpful hints are appreciated from those who have gone before us.
