Call JDRF and get your boy his bag of hope with RUFUS. He will love it. So sorry u have joined us on this journey but we r all here for u. My son was 5 dx last year. He is six now. If u ever need to talk I'm here. There's great parent support groups on fb. Mod squad is also good. U will always find someone up willing to help. U can friend request me on fb if u would like. It's gonna be a roller coaster ride for you n your family but u can do it.

If your insurance will let you, get the Dexcom Share CGM-continuous glucose monitor. It will help you track his blood sugar and adjust his insulin & eating as needed. Testing your blood sugar just gives you a number - a CGM tells you what it's doing ( rising or falling) and you can see it on your smartphone with an app.

Start planning to attend the Children with Diabete's Friends for Life conference in Orlando in July. Your son will make friends from all over the country his age with Type 1 and you will too. I learn just as much from other parents as I do from the breakout sessions.

I remember when I got it at six. Try making him enthusiastic about taking care of it like with games and incentives for example. my parents did that for me and I did well thank g-d
