Hi This is my 1st post so please be gentle with me!!! I'm T1 diagnosed 18 years ago and have a 3yr old son. So far he is perfectly healthy but ever since he was born I've been worried that I may have passed diabetes onto him (my dad and his mum also had/have T1) . Every time he drinks a little more than usual, says he's tired or goes to the toilet more often I have a nagging worry that he may be developing diabetes! Sometimes I feel like it's totally irrational but I can't seem to shake this feeling! It didn't help that when he was ill over Xmas with tonsillitis, the out of hours Doctor checked his wee and said that there were high level of ketones showing. She hadn't been made aware that I was diabetic at this point but when I mentioned it she tested his bloods and they were OK said that ketones is an indicator that a child is dehydrated. I can honestly say that the bottom fell out my world when I heard the word ketones! When we got back to the car I broke down and took a while for my wife to get out of me what was wrong. Ever since then I haven't felt right and feel sick at the thought of something that might not even happen. It doesn't help that I feel like I'm suffering from burnout too after a pretty **** year. How do other T1 parents cope?
