My son was diagnosed 3 years ago, first they said that he was type one and now they are calling it Brittle. I get upset because I feel as though he will never have a norm. The Doctors do all these test because they don't understand a lot about this brittle diabetes. I get nervous and fearful for his future. One minute he will be 123 then a few hours later 600 or more with no keytones. I feel as though he will never have a normal life. We have had him the hospital ICU several times. He takes three different insulin and takes anywhere between 6 to 10 shots a day. His diet is so carefully monitored but there seems to be no relief. I wish I knew more about this type does anyone?
