We saw a diabetic counselor today..she's a RN and works with diabetics all day long...lucky girl. She says Zack's symtoms are typical of Type 1...not type 2. Hmmmmm......and she also suggested we see a specialist.....hmmmmm again. She even called and made the appointment for us. I've heard good things about this Dr...from more than one person. I actually feel giddy inside knowing we are on the right track to getting his blood sugar under control. Today his high was 491 and his low was something like 327....and that's with the insulin use. I'm thankful to finally talk to someone who seems like she knows what she's talking about and can explain it to me.....the medical terminology challenged person that I am. What I really want for my boy is for him to feel better......and be better. In the words Zack used in answering the question "How do you feel about having diabetes?".....IT SUCKS.
