My son, Elijah, the light of my life, was diagnosed with Type I Diabeties when he was only 14-mon. old. Aside from your usual energy that little boys are blessed with, when his blood sugar is too high or too low, he gets worse. Now, there is a very huge possiblity that he has ADD. I was diagnosed with ADD when I was 10 and my husband also has it. Both of our moms are saying that Elijah has all the classic symptoms of ADD, but I don't just want to put him on med's. He already has to take 2-3 shots daily due to the diabeties. I think it would be really unfair if he had to take medicine for ADD as well. But, if he does need it, I don't want him to go without it. My mom chose not to have me medicated, and I know it was rough on her (I was a sheer terror as a child) and my husband grew up in a family that believed if you weren't bleeding to death, you dealt with it on your own. What should I do? Should I put him on Med's?Answer Question
