Man I was diagnosed when I was 4, and school was hard. As I looked back at school I found out that that the kids that were making fun of me just didn't know what diabetes was, there for because I was different they made fun of me. When I was in school I never had to carry anything around with me except a piece of candy. Life with diabetes is hard, and I would say treat him with love, he is different and that is not always bad. I used to be mad at the world because I had diabetes, but one day I sat down and thought about it and really it was good because I had to be active I could not just be a couch potato so I had to be active. If there is one thing I could say to you is this, people always make fun of people who are different and your son and I were/are different, but not everyone around your son needs to know tell him to keep everything in the nurses office. And this I just remembered, I when to a high school in California and the had little cards they gave to me that was a pass to go to the bathroom/nurses office/ front of the lunch line/, all I had to do was show the teacher the card and it took care of everything, maybe you can talk to your sons school about something like that.
