    Ifran, there is a massive amount of work going on to move the understanding of diabetes forward, with the ultimate aim of a cure for all types.

    I can only imagine how devastating the double diagnosis has been. but with luck, as they grow and mature a bit they can be each other's support.

    Where I live there is a young person's choir for children and young people with diabetes, and they seem totally "at home" with is all - almost all pumping.

    At a social function where there was a buffet, they seemed quite happy to be dialing up their boluses. Of course, some had input from a parent into how much etc., but they were very independent.

    The forum can be a great support mechanism.

    Good luck with it all, and hopefully some other parents might drop by to say hello.

    Hello @Irfan_UL_Hassan Welcome to the forum :) are you based in the UK ? I would suggest if you are getting in touch with Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation: https://jdrf.org.uk/. They arrange meet ups so you can connect with other parents as well as getting involved in research and charity events, JDRF are actively seeking a cure for type 1 so a great charity to get involved with. We do live in an age where technological advances mean we can manage this condition far easier now than ever and although no cure at present so much work is going on to help us live without this impacting on our lives so much. Are you getting much support from your healthcare team with this ?
