    I have a son of 9 and a newly diagnosed T1 age 6. My 9 year old is in the ADHD spectrum. (As if we isn't have enough to deal with!) he was diagnosed age7/8. You need referring to CAMH by your doctor. Child and adolescent mental health team. They will help assess him. It's a long slow process and you have to tell them you want seeing shout scream and get ourself noticed or it will go on as on. My newly diagnosed son has displayed very angry behaviour since dx and I worry he's going the same way but he is more clued up then my oldest and I think it's the emotions that go with db I'm still struggling myself and often cry with the unfairness of it all.

    Hello,
    I know this is a long time from first post but hopefully you will still get it.
    my son has type 1 and on the asd spectrum but since he has been diagnosed with diabetes he has had massive ADHD behavioural problems. I have been looking onto this and want it be known that there is a conection between diabetes and ADHD/ADD. I found a few people that think this like psychologist an oseopath that does neuro feedback amongst others. My son and his uncle who both have type 1 and both have ADHD plus other mental health problems.
    I wish someone would look into this more as none of the diabetic nurses ever mention it or understand it. I made this connection myself then dug a little deeper to find medical professionals that may if needed be able to input. What we really need is research into this and have the right people to go to instead of having to go through the whole CAMHS system to find someone who gets it.

    hi everyone that had commented just a quick update nearly 5 year since my original post regarding my sons behavior he is now 10yr old and thinking back to when i posted that first post i could never have thought that it was possible to get worse but it has in fact its 10 times worse but good news is i have finally got the GP and Diabetes team taking my concerns more seriously and last week he was finally referred to a behavior specialist it has taken nearly 5 yr for someone to take notice of me my last straw was my son going for a knife when he was fighting with his sister that was it i demanded for the GP to do something i told him i am at breaking point and i was not moving from his room till he agreed to help me hopefully this is the start of my son finally getting the help he needs thank you everyone of you for your help
