I think you can ask for help from pshycologist. this really can help to deal with the stuff and help you to find ways to help him to deal with diabetes. you can try to find another kid of his age who deals with the same thing.

That's heartbreaking. Have you looked at the childrenwithdiabetes.com website? Maybe other parents dealing with same challenge. I've had T1 for 42 years and having a great life.

My daughter was 6 when dx. She's almost 17. We would be happy to talk to your little boy! He might need a little interaction with others. Have you looked into the jdrf? They have great programs!

it is very had for kids to be diagnosed with this chronic disease as kid love to eat every candy or sweets they see. I thing a psychologist can help him. also talk to your doctor about the pump is easier for him as it will take away injecting him a few times a day to once every 3 days. it will also manage his sugars better. I was diagnosed at 10 years old now am 32 I would have wish I had the pump then and not as an adult. good luck with your Lil one and God Bless you.
