Hello. My name is Jovany. My 3 yr old was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes right after thanksgiving. We found out while he was sick. We were admitted to Childrens Hospital, first in ICU for 2 days then the Endo. floor. His blood sugar was 700 when we arrived at the hospital. We were in total shock, no one we know has juvenile diabetes in my or my husbands family. We are learning to deal with it. I am a nurse and know about type 2 but this is new to me. Especially being that its my own son. He is getting back to himself and getting used to all the pokings and pricks. Our Dr suggested this site for support and day to day ideas. Hope to establish some connections here.
