My 5 year old son was just diagnosed 5 days ago with type 1 diabetes. It was such a shock!
3 weeks ago he fell and broke his arm and had to have surgery, pins, cast, etc. At this time he started to not sleep so well, and started peeing the bed on and off. Well it just so happened that he had a well visit this past monday and we mentioned the peeing of the bed. The dr took a urine test and his glucose was over 500 and he sent us right to the ER and sure enough he has diabetes. We caught it very early.
I understand all the math and equation part of this but the problem I am having is the snacks between meals. It is almost impossible to find snacks for a 5 year old that are under 5 carbs! If anyone has any snack suggestions that are under 5 carbs I would really appreciate it!!! thx
