There really isn’t anything off the table for Gunner. Thanks to modern medicine, and new technology, T1 isn’t what it was years ago. We feed Gunner whatever he wants (within reason), and, as long as we count his carbs, and adjust for his bolus, we keep his BG within range. Being a 2 y.o., we don’t let him drink sugary drinks (I.e. sodas, or Juicy Juice) and he doesn’t get a lot of sugar snacks either. Mostly, he wears Goldfish, and Fruit Snacks (Puppy Dog Pals, Mickey and the Roadster Racers, etc, etc). He eats regular meals with us, unless he’s having a 2 y.o. Tantrum. Anyhoo, it’s just about letting him be normal and experiencing life like anyone else.

Tandem works with dexcom. It’s the only one I’ve had, but that kind of set up is going places.

Thank you. Looking forward to using this forum for my daughter who has type 1 diabetes.
