    [Diagnosis] Cuando un Adolescente Deja de Tratar a su Tipo 1
    Cualquier padre de un niño recientemente diagnosticado con Tipo 1 debe sentir que el período después de la diagnosis es el más peligroso en la vida de ese joven. Es la peor pesadumbre de un padre – un joven de 15 años con la diabetes de Tipo 1 que se muere por falta de insulina. Al leer una historia así por primera vez, el instinto natural puede ser montar un bloqueo mental a través de buscar a un villano obvio para echarle la culpa.

    [Diagnosis] My Nights With the Mask
    Before this diagnosis, I was sleeping straight through, long nights, but breathing terribly (which I was never really aware of). It’s been a few weeks of adjusting to sleeping with the CPAP mask for my sleep apnea. I’m not gonna lie. It has not been easy. I was really hoping that after a few nights of using it, I was going to feel super energetic, chipper (“genki” in Japanese) and awesome. But no.

    We are only 18 months into my daughter, Maggie’s Type 1 diabetes Diagnosis. At this point in my son Clifford's diagnosis, I remember being angry and confused. I really did not understand the full picture of what had come into our lives. This time around however, I'm in a much better place. I am no longer harboring feelings of anger, and there is no confusion. Instead, I understand what we're dealing with, and what is to come.

Let me repeat that, there are absolutely NO MDIs (multiple daily injections) 17 months after diagnosis. It's interesting to see how Type 1 develops, having never had any experience with it before Clifford's diagnosis. That title may SHOCK some of you.

    [Diagnosis] Can Early Type 1 Diabetes Screening Prevent DKA?
    Currently, about 25 percent of cases of Type 1 diabetes are diagnosed during DKA, and too often a missed diagnosis proves fatal. Presumably, the tradeoff for this early stress would be a reduction in stress levels when the child becomes symptomatic especially for parents who are suddenly are thrown into the deep end of diabetes with a crisis-led Type 1 diagnosis. Diabetes advocates have long argued that all young children should be screened for Type 1 diabetes during checkups.

Recent studies suggest that the best way to ensure quality diabetes care for children with Type 1 is to take care of their parents.

    This has resulted in a persistent state of wonder with me since diagnosis. As I round the corner entering my 14th year with diabetes, I've found myself pondering a lot more things lately. A recent blog post by Mike inspired this musing. What do my parents and siblings think? After 14 years? Somethings always separated me from them. I am the sick one. In retrospect even before T1D, I was always kind of the "sick one". I had the most chronic health problems (and still do).
