  1. Hello to all, and please excuse my poor grammar. I have a 17 year old daughter who was diagnosed around two years ago now, and although struggled to start off with, she had slowly got on top off injections etc. This I'm afraid to say was short lived, and has now regressed to checking herself twice of three times a week with no correction when high.
    She has an average readings of 15,5 and as a parent just don't know what to do to help her. We've had a Psychiatrist speak with her but with no joy, the diabetes nurses have told us they have offered her all they can and were at our ends to know what to advice her or do to help her next.
    I know people mean well however all I hear is the damage it will do.
    Please help if you can.
    Thank you.
