Hi, my son was diagnosed when he was 8. That was more than 11 years ago now. We've learned a few things along the way. I would be happy to share whatever I can to try to help.

My son was diagnosed at 23 months old. I still remember what those first few hours and days were like. (Not fun memories BTW) I had him sleep next to me for over a year because he couldn't verbalize when he was low. I could feel him get sort of a twitch going and I would make him wake up and eat. Let me know if you would like to talk. You can message me anytime.
