sorry if my post seemed to imply that i thought it should be a 'secret'. i just meant that if it really comes down to it, it could be. i am trying to counter the fear and distractedness that comes with one's first encounter with this disease. as i said in some post, friends and teachers should know, but the simple act of checking one's blood sugar, the only thing she actually needs to do at school, should really not become a major administrative concern requiring forms and certainly not permission. i just feel that the whole act of giving in to the really pointless demands of a lot of bureaucrats, , when these individuals have little to offer in this specific case, is fundamentally wrong headed

If you wish to follow a strict control regiment, then shots before meals should be a requirements. In addition, since teenagers have unique schedules, the ability to take a shot when needed can be helpful (forget to eat and reaction hits).

I'm just posting that every person is different.....and you need to make adjustments to specific needs. It will take time till the OP's teenager gets a schedule etc that meets her needs.

Be glad she didn't get this disease back when I did......Uncle Ben's rice was on the recommended food list.
