From Andover, Massachusetts, USA:
My 14 year old daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 at 8 months old. We have had our ups and downs, but generally speaking her control has been good. She has just been diagnosed with EBV (mononucleosis, caused by the Ebstein-Barr virus). It has been difficult to work around the changes in her activity levels--from very active to sleeping constantly, but I know this will pass. Can we expect any long term effects that would be specific to her being diabetic?
No, not that I can think of.
