My son (aged 10) has recently been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. All came a bit out of the blue, but in hindsight, if we'd known the symptons, we might have seen it coming a bit earlier.
Luckily he is very sporty (loves football, x-country, tennis etc) and has always eaten healthily - he doesn't like sweets, cake, chocolate etc so that also helps. Just wondered if there are any other parents out there who've been dealing with it for a bit longer and have any advice, suggestions on managing a kid's very energetic and sporty lifestyle with diabetes. So far he's doing as well as can be expected I think, as his sugar levels are well down from the 30s (45 when first diagnosed!), but we're still trying to get the balance right with snacks in between sport, school PE, meals etc ....
