I have a friend whose son is around 16 y/o and is insulin dependent. She is looking for ways to help son. Like books or links on diabetes. Ways to eat healthier, sugar substitutes etc..... Anything would help thanks.

I have an 8 yr old son who is insulin dependant as well. Very hard disease. Sometimes I think "why me?" I have done google searches, and have found things. I am hoping by instilling in my son's head that he has to stay healthy NOW to live a long long life, he will have no problems when he is a teenager...which I hear is soooooooo hard (because they want to be "normal" like other teenagers).

I feel for your friend. I'm sure she is stressed out most days like I am.
