Been a while since I have posted here mainly due to being so busy with baby #4.

The problem I am having with Nathan (T1 - he is 13) is that his weight is out of control! It is so strange .... when his sugars are all out of wack he loses weight and then when his sugars are controlled well he gains a ton!! He is now up to 178 pounds and I don't know what to do. We are eating healthier, healthier snacks, he works out on his WiiFit and nothing works.... he just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Most T1 kids I see are skinny so what gives?!

Could be his hormones and puberty. My 13 yr ds isnt the T1 in the family but he eighs the same. And I think right now hes havng a hard tme losing due to is hormonesand bein on rispedal doesnt help much either.

Yeah it could be his hormones I suppose and I never thought of the thyroid even though I have thyroid issues. Next time the Dr. does a blood work-up I will have them check it out. Thanks Ladies.
