  1. For kindergarten next year, my daughter would not be near her grandparents, who are educated in her diabetes care. Is this sufficient cause to request an exemption so she can attend a school close to them? (31 Dec 2013)

  2. I have a young special education student on Lantus and metformin. She has had several incidents of explosive diarrhea possibly caused by the metformin. What other medication would be appropriate for her? Can you provide more information on type 2 in children, especially Native Americans? (31 Dec 2013)

  3. Is my low testosterone level the reason I have been diagnosed with type 2? (31 Dec 2013)

  4. Can someone go in and out of the honeymoon? Sometimes our daughter needs no insulin for weeks, then needs daily shots for a few weeks, then no insulin, etc. (23 Dec 2013)

  5. My daughter has had chronic diarrhea for a couple of years. We stopped giving her dairy and gluten. She had an A1c of 6.4, borderline glucose readings. What do you think this could be? (23 Dec 2013)

  6. My college-aged child will be studying abroad in the UK for six months starting in January 2014. For what kind of diabetes support, supplies, difficulties should we prepare? (23 Dec 2013)

  7. Based on user experience, can you advise us about which pump we should get for our five-year-old son? I need one that is both easy for the parent and reliable. (23 Dec 2013)
