I have had type 2 diabetes since 1990, and am under pretty good control. My reason for seeking help here is because my 17 year old daughter has type 1 and was diagnosed in May of 2007 and is still having alot of issues with control which causes us to fight alot and I am needing to know if anyone else out there is struggling with this. I am sending her to college next year and fear the worst. There is nothing I can do to make her see what this is doing to her, she is very active, has always played sports, i just can't get her to check it and take her insilin and control like she should . She takes Lantus at night, we are up to 24 units, and Nololog for anytime she eats carbs, and her ratio is 1 unit for every 5 carbs. The first year was all good cause she was still on her "honeymoon" stage but now she has 300's , 400's, 200's, and then every now and then you get a 100 or so. she is all over the place and there is nothing I can do!!
