(Tish4bing) #1

Hi I’m Tish my son was just diagnosed last week and he is 17 he also is ADHD,Bipolar, Asthmatic. Has anyone else had to deal with any of these plus T1 ? Any advice welcome, he is out of school for the next month since we will be changing meds for bipolar because one causes increased blood sugar. He was in out patient intensive therapy for mood swings when they ran his blood work his sugar was 588 which we had just had his blood work done 3 weeks prior and it was 103 it’s been a wild ride
