I’m near Houston. I was 16 when diagnosed 56 years ago. It is not easy being different at that time but kids now are so much more resilient it seems. Is she on a pump or injections? Dexcom?

I was diagnosed recently too and it can be very traumatic for kids. I suggest let her join a support group and be very supportive in terms of food and sugar readings. Encourage her to have home made deserts and replace sugar with dates in your cakes.
