I am still learning about this type 1...our six year old grandson has been diagnosed...I am struggling!! When someone asks about him, I tell them he is type 1 diabetic and they all will start giving me sugar free hints...I say we don't count sugar in a food but carbs...they look at me like I am crazy because all they know is type 2. But really why do you not look at sugars more closely? If his body turns carbs into sugar then what does his body do with the sugar content in a food?
