    Support Group for college student

    My son was diagnosed with T1 when he was 16 years old. He’s going to be a sophomore in college. His first year away didn’t not go so well. He was very inattentative to his blood sugar, was hospitalized with ketoacidosis. Then was diagnosed with fatty liver disease. Drinking alcohol has substantially interfered with him taking care of himself. Are there any support groups for him?

    Crickets

    That's the result of having a guest "expert's" mug on your board for two years, spouting all her glorious credentials and awards, and respond to 3 posts? "chirp, chirp, chirp..." A board, like this, needs expert participation and commentary. If there is no diabetes specialist presence, here, anyone who posts a question is left to "guess" which responses are most applicable to them. And, if you've read some of the questions, you'd know, lickity-split,....
