My teenage son was diagnosed with diabetes last week. His endocrinologist told him to exercise, diet, and lose weight. She gave him a blood test gadget and showed us how to use it. She also wants him to see a cardiologist, eye doctor, and see her again next week.
He's eating much better but he won't do anything physically active. He's also self conscious.
I'd like to find a diabetes support group for people his age in our city so he won't feel so alone. I was looking for one when I found this sight.
