I am Kitt and I have been reading and posting in many of the forums. My husband has CD and has been on Prednisone several times but for short times so no diabetes.
My heart goe out to you with children that have to deal with disease processes so early in life. God obviously gave each of your children the right parents as you are doing a great job in advocating for your child.
My 21 year old son was the picture of health, worked out, ate only healthy foods and was killed in a car crash. I asked my therapist "why me?" the answer he gave me, was "Why not you?"
Gentle hugs to all of you.
Thank you Phishbowl, I am lucky that my doctor put me on Diamacron in place of glyberide, ever since I started taking the Diamacron my sugars are rarely higher than 8, whereas before, I had to almost starve to keep the sugars low.
((((Kitt))) I am so sorry for the loss of your son, I lost a son too, in November'03. Did you go through a time where you didnt monitor your diabetes because of the loss? I didnt get the diabetes till after my son was killed, and up until a few months ago, I really honestly didnt care. But I do now. Feel free to email if you ever need to talk.
