    Kudos to Shelley! What wonderful ideas she has. Her young daughter is lucky she’s her Mom! I was intrigued by Shelley’s story of her having taken her daughter to have her blood glucose measured, and finding it was 50. I was diagnosed 41 years ago, and recall hypoglycemic-like episodes during the 6 months before my diagnosis with Type I. I am surmising that, when the T cells kill off a beta cell, it dumps its store of insulin into the bloodstream all at once. Has anyone ever heard an endocrinologist say that?

    Thank you for sharing your story. Managing how a child feels about their diabetes is a whole extra challenge versus being an adult PWD. Kudos!
