Re: [IPk] Re:Bed-wetting



Charlie (11 yrs old, diagnosed aged 4, pumping nearly 1 year) bed-wets when
his sugars are running high. This is very embarrassing for him at school
(although they have a 'secret' way of dealing with it so that the other boys
don't know.) For some reason, during the first part of August, his levels
were rarely below 20  and he had one or two accidents. Now he's much more
stable (why? same diet, exeercise...?) and the bed-wetting has completely
disappeared.
