HbA1c 9.7!!! It’s been in the 9’s for over a year now! What do we do wrong?? It’s times like this when I realize I should have a new look to our perspective of diabetes and reevluate everything. Jan-Hendrik seems so oblivious to the fact that he should keep his Bg lower. If I does’nt nag him he just don’t care! Eats what he likes whenever he likes, which can be ok if he just remember to bolus. By the time I nag him to test his again his Bg’s are up - “Oh I forgot to bolus!”
I think his father is to blame partly - Let me explain. Father has this extreme fear for low’s and panic if Jan-Hendrik’s bg are within normal range. He normally then says " your not going to hold - do something your bg is too low" It’s like he wants JH bg to be above 10mmol the whole time! Then he does’nt have to worry that he should do something IF he becomes hypo.
JH want’s to please his dad- his hero- who doesn’t want to take him anywhere because he doesn’t want to sit with a child he has to watch all the time. ( Don’t get me wrong I love them both very much but I also know their weaknesess). Damn I’m just mad!!
