I was devastated when Stuart, my 21 month old boy, was diagnosed with diabetes. He had been exposed to a virus three weeks before, which in turn led to the disease. He recently turned three years old and is now learning to assist with his insulin injections. We have always tried to get him involved with glucose testing and injections from the start. He now will rub the alcohol, hold cotton after a glucose check, pinch skin to prepare for injections, and push the plunger. He is a very independent child, and is doing remarkably well. Of course we have had problems, but we are all learning together.
