My sister was just diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and shes only 9 years old. Ofcourse we all are upset, and now shes going to have to be taking 4 shots a day.
Is there anyone else out there that can tell me how their life is now with this condition? I mean is it something that I must worry about day to day about my sister, Im just really confused at the moment on whats going to happen in the near future.
Thank you.

Looking for a possible cause to the sudden on set of type 1 diabetes in a teen age girl.

3 months after having my 2nd son we found out that my 4 year old had type 1 diabetes. I don’t know if I should be worried about my 8 month old having type 1 diabetes too? I really hope not, but if anyone could help it would be great.

I have Type 1 diabetes and at the moment i am covered by my Step-mothers health insurance but in 2010 her insurance runs out for me, is there anyway of getting Health insurance to cover my diabetes except by getting a job that has health insurance as standard?

My husband has got type 1 and no1 from his family had it so dont think this heridity so is ther a chance of my baby gettin diabetes or is there any way to prevent it occuring in my baby? I dont have any child as on now but we would surely plan some day so can you just help ? Thanks in advance for helpin me !!!!

I’ve had type 1 diabetes since last October and since then i’ve gained 3stone (due to the artificial insulin) i’m also on the contraception injection, and i’m finding it so hard to lose weight!
Please help! I eat healthily as I always have. (Type 1 diabetes is something you cant prevent unlike type 2 which is caused by being unhealthy/elderly)

What exactly is type one diabetes? I looked on google, but its all in medical terms :p
How do you get type 1? I know a few of the symptoms, but how do you get it??

i just found out that i have type 1 diabetes. my family isnt poor, but we r in debt. and now i have diabetes which is more money. i just wish i can help my parents and win cash or something so we can afford this.

but sometimes i can’t keep a hard on. I find that when this happens my blood sugar is usually low. Does low blood sugar cause this? Also, does type 1 diabetes cause ED? My A1C is always <6.5.

Diabetes runs in my husbands side of the family, and he was diagnosed at 11 withtype 1 diabetes. We have a 6 month old baby girl and im just curious as to how early type 1 diabetes can be detected or how early it can occur. I Would appriciate any info on the type of tests that are run to diagnose this in an infant or young child.Thanks!
