Sure our kids know what we have to do everyday to manage T1. My 13 year old knows what good vs bad numbers are and won't let me drive if I'm too low. She is very aware of what T1 means for me on a daily basis. I've had T1 her entire life. But I don't think she is aware of the bad part of T1 such as complications, etc that could eventually shorten a life.
My question for everyone is...how honest are you with your kids about the down side of diabetes?
P.S. I'm just curious, I manage my T1 very well and am 20 years of T1 w/ no complications. I'm not trying to start a negative thread about complications, etc.
