|This just highlights how Type 1 affects the body!!|
I feel very lucky to have found a very supportive Diabetes Care Team based at St James Hospital in Leeds.
Like many other parents attending clinic with children or adults who attend, 3/4 of the conversation I can never remember!!
I am so nervous and busy praying that Claudia's Hba1c is within range that the whole appointment becomes very surreal.
On this occasion we saw James, who was lovely & Dr Campbell and the rest of the team popped in to say hello. they have a way of making children & parents feel very welcome.
The readings from the CGM were amazing!! However it shows clearly how Type 1 affects the body. I would love to put a CGM reading from someone who doesn't have Type 1 Diabetes and compare their reading to Claudia's. I am sure it would really highlight the effect Type 1 Diabetes has on the body. It's no wonder our children feel moody, teary, etc
So it is a huge relief when Leeds send Claudia & I our little reminder card.I have implemented the changes they have recommended. Even though we are very confident at adjusting Claudia's insulin. A fresh pair of expert eyes giving you a few pointers is priceless.
I am also very proud as Claudia has taken even more control of her care. She achieved a Hba1c of 6.3. If Claudia say's she doesn't want to do something, I never make her.
