Hi, My name is Michele. I am the caregiver to a very energetic 5 year old boy with T1D. We, me and my fiancee, have been taking care of him since late January of this year, so we are new at giving shots and correcting sugar levels. Reading some of these posts has really been helpful to me so I just wanted to introduce myself and say hello and welcome any advice anyone has to give. We've just recently went from a compound to regular insulin and are using a pen needle. He was not being taken care of properly before he came to live with us, so he's also gained weight, grown taller and has had a much better A1C. He had extremely high levels before and now he is more consistent (mostly) with his levels. Thanks so much for reading.
