about possible complications? My daughter is 11 and was only diagnosed a few weeks ago. And yes I have read about possible complications but I haven't ahred them with her except that if she ever has the stonmach flu we may need to go to ER and low sugars and ketones are dangerous and need to be treated and that high sugars could result in organ damage over the long term... But I have read in some threads about telling people that their children could be dead in two days with out insulin..... I can't imagine saying that to my daughter just yet (if ever), or when well meaning friends talk about someones kidney failure due to diabetes... I make sure she is out of ear shot... So my question is.... when do you tell your children about the worst case scenarios... when is the "right" time... because just now I can't imagine ever having to tell her these things.
