Di Smith My granddaughter has been diagnosed with T1. I am just learning the carb units etc. I am trying to get my head around the amount of carbs for small person vs adult. Shouldn't a child have less carbs than an adult. Ie 1 slice of bread instead of 2 for an adult? Remaining food in the meals made up of 'free foods'?

emma Hello, I have a 9 year old daughter. She has been unwell, doctors said viral. She is drinking alot and going to the toilet lots. I took her bloods at home right after breakfast and it read 8.9. She then perked up a bit and then she had something to eat at lunch, and then came over all lethargic and tired I checked her again and she was 5.4! Can you possibly tell me if this is normal please. She had scramble egg on toast in morning with a glass of pure orange juice that she downed really quickly.
Worried My daughter is 16 and has been admitted into hospital for DKA, 2 times in as little as 5 months. Her hba is 11. She lives with her dad and I'm not sure if the day to day management is happening. Is it normal that teenagers have frequent DKA episodes?
Makayla Hi. So about 3 months ago I was diagnosed with diabetes. I'm 15. My doctors are pretty much assuming I'm type 2 but said they can't be sure because I'm so young. I'm not on any insulin or medication and I have a healthy diet (my dietitian is very happy with it). So my problem is that I keep having Hypos (low blood sugar) I've had a few in the last couple of months but in the last two days I've had 3. I haven't been eating any differently or doing more exercise than usual. Could you please tell me why this is happening? Also is it possible I'm type 1?
