    Hi

    My 12 year old son has been diagnosed with type 1 in the last 10 days. It was a huge shock to us all and the only reason we found out was due to his excessive thirst.
    I must say he is coupling extremely well and would go as far to say he is coupling better than myself or his dad!!!! He is doing all his insulin injections the only thing we do is help calculate his carbs to see if he has it right.
    Looking forward to having some info overload on this.
