Welcome! I am only able to do that as I'm a 73 old type 2, but I do know that a low carb/high fat diet has done me well. Some of our type 1's will be along soon with information. Have you read Dr. Richard Bernstein's book yet? He is a practicing doctor still and you'll find lots of interesting information. Perhaps Google his name? I know he has a website with some of his information on it.

Good luck,

You may also be able to get the book from the library!

Here's a link that will get you started on Dr. Bernstein's plan Read It Online! . . . I have no doubt this is a difficult time for a teenager with diabetes. How long since he was diagnosed? Is he on MDI or is he a pumper? Is he rebelling, or just out of control in a sea of hormones? Ask any questions - we have many type one members who can help.

Hello. My daughter is 14 and was diagnosed as type 1 diabetic about a month ago. It is a very emotional time especially on our children. Feel free to ask me questions. My daughter and I are still trying to get the hang of it. My daughter still has times when she becomes frustrated, upset and scared.... I just tell her it will get easier.

My son has been diagnosed for about 7 years but now that he is a teen he has gone off the pump, which I can understand. Will not test, or inject and has continually high readings. We have had our worst HBA1C ever. We have tried many ideas and worked with the doctors and educators but all seems to no avail. Had a work associate die from diabetes complications and that didn't even seem to effect him. Looking to get some new ideas to make him step up and manage his diabetes. All these issues are when at school, with friends or not reminded at home. If you ask continually at home he will manage his diabetes.

My daughter is the same way. When at home she manages her diabetes, with reminders and when at school or friends she doesn't manage it at all. She has a hard time managing her blood sugar levels and is unresponsive to hypos..... She has sever nerve damage in her ears and even that hasn't told her that she has to inject and test in school. Honestly I don't know how to get her to start. Good luck!
