    thanks for the kind words.....

    His A1c is 5.7, so now we are testing twice a day and are looking into reserach studies.

    I'd like to find out what "side effects" can happen from the different studies. We a lot of homework to do right away.

    Thanks everyone!

    I'm so sorry to hear this. I worry about my DD's two younger brothers and are constantly checking them every time they drink more than usual or wet the bed. I know they say siblings have only a small chance of being diabetic, but it looks to me that there are quite a lot of folks out there that have more than one kid diagnosed....Best of luck with finding a good clinical trial. I would be interested to hear what trial you get involved with. Sorry again....

    Well, with that A1C hopefully he will not be DX'd at this time and can enter a Prevetative study, rather than a new onset study.

    We are hoping to get my dd into the oral insulin study in 6 months if everything stays the same as it is now.

    Good luck.

    Sorry to hear of your bad news. I know exactly how it feels and it is just as tough as the first dx. Good luck with the research into keeping the beta cells going.

    I hope you do better than I did, the day we got the second dx we forgot the first kids insulin.

    All the best.

    I actually had a tougher time with the second child diagnosed. You know what you are in for. But you also have a lot of skills and are not like a deer in the headlights. Sorry to hear, but you obviously caught it early. Good job!

    I'm so sorry this is happening to your family. Hopefully you can preserve those precious islet cells. Good job for being so vigilant and catching it early.
