My son was diagnosed with T1D when he was 4. He’s now 35 and although most his life his diabetes has been under control, he now has additional symptoms to deal with. He has pain in his arms/wrists and has to wear braces on his wrists to sleep. He was diagnosed with diabetic carpal tunnel. He also has the pins and needles (as he describes it) in his feet. He use to jog and was in very good shape. He has not jogged for 2 years and has gained weight.
His attitude has changed and we have had conversations about his future. He believes that his life is limited and will not live past 55 years old. Something every mother wants to hear.
Is there anyone out there who is dealing with this also and can offer some advise? He’s dead-set on his beliefs and really does not want me to offer any advise; just listen to him vent.
Thanks for any feedback that would be helpful.
