Hi..this is my first post here and I look forward to everyone's input. My son was diagnosed with diabetes when he was 12 months old....oh, the trials and tribulations but hey we've made it...and pretty well I'd say,so far!!! Now, 18 years later we are getting ready for his move away from home and off to college in September.
I think my biggest concern about him living away from home is him getting through the night safely and not being too low to rouse himself in the morning. This isn't something that happens regularly now, but it has happened, and thank goodness we are here and have a routine set to wake him each morning to get things going. I have to admit I am more programmed for this time of day than he is...typical teenager he is...loves to be up late at night and sleep in in the morning....he can sleep right through an alarm...not because he is low...just because...he can!!!
Any advice, tips on coping with heading away to school and staying safe and keeping good control
