I am a parent of a 9 year old PWD. My daughter M was diagnosed in August of 2011. It was a series of subtle changes that helped us recognize something was wrong. After a brief business trip I came home and thought she looked thin. My wife and I noticed, among other things M was always thirsty, she seemed lethargic on a trip to the water park and overall, just didn't seem herself. At first we thought it was the summer heat. She just had an annual check up about two weeks prior and everything was fine. One evening my wife put M on the bathroom scale and it confirmed she had lost weight in the previous two weeks. We called the doctor and were told to come into the office the next day. Sure enough, a quick test revealed high blood sugar. We immediately checked into the hospital and spent the next three days learning about diabetes.
Recently, this website was passed along to us by another parent of a diabetic child. It is our effort to maintain a love for food and celebrations while always being mindful of her health.
