RE: [IP] Parent to a diabetic child



Pat,
I didn't see Beverly's comment as advice or trying to end an argument. It's
identifying the reason for the "mouthiness" before responding. My kids know
and are constantly testing their limits, and we as parents need to know if
this behavior is a result of bg out of range or normal limit testing. The
response from my wife or myself is going to be very different for the same
behavior, depending on the reason.

Maybe I misunderstood either you or Beverly, so I could be wrong, but that's
how I took her post.

Sorry, but I think that is terrible advice. I am truly sick and tired of
over the past 30 years people (parents, friends, spouse) ending arguments
with "maybe you should check if you are low". Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!
