This segment on the Doctors show this morning was very interesting. I hope that it helps others to understand the importance of keeping track of your blood sugar. Our grandson, age 7, was diagnosed in July of this year with type 1. There is so much education involved with the family, teachers, classmates, that it is unbeliveable. You cannot tell by looking at this otherwise healthy, active boy that there is anything wrong. By the time we got him out of the hospital, after being diagnosed he was already doing his own testing, even though he could not read the high numbers. He is learning (as we all are) how to be in control of his eating, giving himself injections etc. We are very proud of his acceptance and understanding of this disease. I can only hope and pray that he continues and stays healthy. Thank you for setting a great example through your life style and speaking out to others about this disease.
