Behavior

Question from Mustang, Oklahoma, USA:

Our three year old son was diagnosed with type 1 two months ago. He is not potty trained yet. Could the diabetes have anything to do with him not being interested in training yet, or is it just that he isn't ready?

Answer:

If his diabetes is generally well controlled then ‘he’s just not ready’. High blood sugars, however, will make it much more difficult for him to comply with potty training.
