You have taken the most important steps, getting your daughter a counselor and a diabetes educator. I was diagnosed in 1945 and ran high blood sugar for many years. That was because not much was known about diabetes back then and the doctors were no help. Later on there was better information and the technology we have today. I have now been type 1 for 65 years and I am very healthy.

I am telling you that so you will know that even after much high blood sugar, it is still possible to have a long, healthy life. There is no guarantee that things will go equally well for your daughter, so every effort should be taken to put her on the right path to good control, as soon as possible.

I recommend your joining the following site which was created for parents of diabetic children:

Good luck to you and your daughter!
