Once upon a time I cared for a family with young child with type 1 diabetes who was very well controlled. This family had very much to be thankful for.

The child's excellent diabetes control was not due to a prolonged honeymoon phase, but from an invested, hard working family. plus and a child who was just as diligent and attentive. He spent quality time of his own choosing to maintain the best blood sugar control possible.

When I complemented them for their hard work and excellent results, the parents told me an fascinating story I am compelled to share.
