My 17-year-old autistic son Karl was hospitalized with Type 1 diabetes in July, and I’ve started a blog about what we’re doing about it.
Karen and I are both engineers and are relentless about doing our research, so this ought to be worth following if you or a loved one are diabetic, and especially if it’s a diabetic child or someone in the autistic spectrum.
We’ll be talking about how we adjust Karl’s diet — in spite of his very strong food preferences — and monitor and manage his insulin. We are adjusting his dosage ourselves to keep things under better control than if we waited for a regular doctor’s visit.
So take a look at Karl’s Diabetes Blog.
