My 5 year old son was diagnosed with Type 1 a week ago. He is doing ok with all the injections and blood sugar stuff, his complaint is that he is always hungry. He is eating every 3 hours, 3 meals at 60 carbs and 2 snacks at 20. Now he is eating more food and more frequently then ever. I'm feeding him high protein with meat and cheese for snack in between the three hour meals. His blood sugar is still in the 200-300s. with some 400s. The lowest reading I have gotten is 165, this morning after he woke up. I know he is eating so much due to his sugar being high. He will have a full healthy meal (dinner tonight he had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, chicken breat patty, orange, and brocolli and cheese) he is STARVING 10 minutes later. He now prefers to eat oatmeal because if fills him up the longest.
Any suggestions on food?
