My 6 year old son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes last summer. What a shock to all of us. We'd never imagined that the problems with his constipation and hyperactivity was linked to diabetes. We went two years checking with specialists (pediatric gastros) and nobody never mention the word diabetes.
Now, we are trying to learn as much as we can about this disease and living our everyday lives praying that a miracle will happen in the near future for the cure.
He is also a twin with a girl and we have a 15 year old girl, both of whom we are watching very closely. We already done the study on both of them. We are very scared, not only because he has changed so much with his feelings but also all the consequences related to the diabetes. We are trying to get as much support as we can and some counseling for him. We had so much changed in our lives so suddenly that seems like bad dreams. We were just getting ready to move back home overseas with our families when we learned about it and we had to make the decision to stay in the US for a better quality care for him. The changes that we have to take in our lives for our kids! But we would do anything possible in life for our kids!
We just ask God to help us all fighting diabetes to a brighter future. We just want our little one free of worries!
