Q. My 7yr has Diabetes.

She been Diabetic for about 5 weeks and we can't get numbers at a good spot. she aether way to low (30- 60 scary when she gets like this) and to high (300 - 400) We been looking at what she eating calling the physician. he been play with here shots but nothing working. Its when she at school is were the nuber are mostly going up an down. we been trying to work with the school but she the only one in the hole school that has Diabetes. what to do ?
A1Try to reduce her stress.
Keep an eye on her, but don't make it sound like such a big deal.
A2I have an 8 year old son with Type 1. He was diagnosed at 22 months old. Getting their blood sugars under control is very challenging but it will get better. Please ask me any questions you have. The best thing we ever did was put him on the pump. It made eating so much easier instead of food fights.
A3It is obvious that she is eating things in school that are not on her diabetic diet. She is 7 and even if she tells you she isn't, she is probably eating candy of some kind. The problem with candy is it will bring the level up and then when it comes down, it comes down fast and if she hasn't eaten enough of the right diet it can bring it too low. The pages that the lady above have suggested should help you alot.

Q. how diabetes is caused

A2Diabetes is a name for many types of diseases that all have one common path- high levels of glucose that remain in the blood stream and cause damage. The exact mechanism of injury remains somewhat unkown, however it is known that in type 1 diabetes there is an autoimmune damage to the pancreatic cells that produce insulin, and in type 2 diabetes, there is peripheral impairment in the body's reaction to the insulin until all insulin storages in the body are depleted.
