From Roswell, New Mexico, USA:

My son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes several months ago. He did pretty well at first until reality hit. He is taking six to seven shots a day, and he is still having trouble keeping his readings anywhere near normal. The doctors here are trying but aren't having much luck and we're thinking of finding a diabetes clinic.


See Finding a New Diabetes Doctor.

Also, your son's situation might well be clarified by monitoring sugar levels continuously for several days to try to sort out what's happening in more detail. See The Continuous Glucose Monitoring System for more information. Be sure to ask your son's diabetes team about this concept.
