Devan: I Just Pray That Soon There Will be a Cure

teen with diabetes

My name is Lena  and my son Devan was diagnosed at age 6 with type 1. The day we found out his sugar was over 900 and he was in DKA. I was scared as was he. We have struggled for years with this disease. He is now 16 and still has a hard time dealing with it. He has been on the pump and it was okay for about 2 years, but wanted to go back to shots because he hated having it attached all the time especially cause he loves to dance. I worry about him alot because he is a teen and sometimes doesn't want to check sugars and skips doing his shots. No matter what I say to him he feels like I'm nagging him. I am so scared that I will outlive him. As a mother of a t1d, it's not a easy job. You constantly worry about your child and if your doing enough.  I just pray and hope that soon there will be a cure...
