From Bothell, Washington, USA:
My 13 year old son is having trouble with the social aspects of having diabetes. He is having trouble sticking to the strict schedule he's on. He uses a combination of Regular, Lente and Humalog and has to eat at set times with a set number of carbs. His doctor has suggested glargine along with Humalog before every meal, but my son doesn't want to take a shot at school before lunch. Are there any other options?
Believe it or not, no one cares about his diabetes. I know that's hard for him to believe, but.ask him if he cares about others and their problems. I expect he doesn't even notice.
