hi @Philip, sorry to hear about your daughter’s diagnosis, but it’s good to hear you’ll do what you have to do. being a rock and being there for your daughter is what she needs now. regarding your son, there is no real way to screen for type 1. any test the hospital will do is neither confirmation that he’ll ever get or ever not get type 1. not to make you feel worse, it’s just what it is.
you will soon be an expert in type 1. any help or support you need anytime, and we are here. a CDE and a pediatric endo will be your best bet for medical questions though.
since you will have a finger stick meter, if you do notice your son has constant thirst, frequent urination, and is losing weight, that finger stick meter is your first best bet, just be aware that in kids a random high blood sugar can be normal.
hope you are doing ok.
