Hi y'all. I'm Bren. My 16yo son Bobby was diagnosed Wednesday evening with Ty1 Diabetes. We are still adjusting to the whole evolution. He's only been home from the hospital since Friday night . I think he's now taking it better than I am. I have a constant knot in my stomach and here Isit at work andhe'shome and I'm worried todeath about him, although he does text/call and lets me knowhis levels and what he figures he should be giving himself for insulin. I do my own calculations here and confirm his. So far, so good.
When we took him to ER on Wednesday, his BG was 705. 4 hrs later, when the ambulance came to take him to the Chldren's hospital, it was 412. Now it's much lower, but fluctuates a lot which is normal for a few days (so we were told) He's also noticed a blurriness in his vision (so much so that we had to go get him a cheap pair of reader glasses from the drug store. The doctor said this should go away once his body adjusts to the insulin. I sure hope so.
I just wanted to pop in and intro myself and plan on reading the forum looking to capitalize on the knowledge here. Any advice you can give me on dealing with this would be welcomed and appreciated.
