From the moment we receive the diagnosis that we have a child with Type 1 Diabetes, the whirlwind of the disease and its management monopolizes us, often pushing our other children onto the peripheral. Even as that initial chaos subsides, it seems as if the regimented schedules and monitoring of diabetes supplants the needs, interests and scheduling of their non-diabetic siblings.
As parents, we try not to let this happen, yet it's difficult with the need to be hyper-focused on the day-to-day management of Type 1: What did you eat? How much? When? Have you tested your blood? What was the reading? Have you exercised? When? What did you do? For how long?
I have three sons, with my oldest being a Type 1 Diabetic. I bombard him several times daily with the above litany of questions, and my other two sons often jump in during my inquisition to tell me what they've eaten, how many grams of carbohydrates they ate, how much they exercised, and so on.

Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert

Full Question: I am 40 years old and have been pretty much headache free my entire life. I started using statin drugs about 2 years ago and switched to Lovastatin about a year ago. Since those times I have had some intense headaches when I work out really hard. I recently have had my dosage of Lovastatin upped to 40 mg and it seems like I have constant headaches. I spoke to my doctor about the headaches but he did not seem concerned or interested in them. In looking at the internet, it appears headaches are a possible side effect with Lovastatin. Have you found this to be the case? Would you assume the headaches are more than likely caused by Lovastatin? Thank you in advance for your assistance, Del. Answer: Dear Del; I have heard of this on exactly one occasion. But, it was in a headache patient whose headaches increased after being put on a statin. I don't remember which one.
