My son is 3 and was diagnosed 1 month ago. My emotions have been all over the place. The hospital told me I didn't do anything to cause my son's diabetes and that I couldn't have prevented it. Then a friend posts an article saying that leaky gut may trigger diabetes for some people. Another article says vaccines can be a trigger. I'm suddenly feeling doubt and guilt. I think back and wonder if he had/has a gluten intolerance or whether I should not have had him vaccinated. My husband and I have always kept pretty healthy foods in the house. We don't have a lot of sweets or soda. I never imagined that innocently buying bread (with gluten) or milk ( with the casein) would cause my child to get a chronic, incurable disease!! When did bread and milk become so lethal? Didn't we all grow up on it? I just need to know how other mothers deal with these awful feelings of guilt and sadness. Some days, I feel strong and confident. Other days, I feel so overwhelmed with depression!
