    Perhaps even speak with his teacher? Also, check with his doctor or the insurance company about the option of an Insulin Pump with a CGMS (Continuous Glucose Monitoring System) to see if that would be a viable option for him. I don't know the age requirements on these, as I'm a Type 2 and don't take insulin. I have read that they are pretty easy to use and the CGMS would provide him with near constant feedback on his numbers. It would also make it easier for a teacher or a nurse to see exactly what is going on.

    Good luck to you! Diabetes Forums (in my source below) has a very friendly and helpful community of people who are Type 1's, or parents of Type 1's, and who use the pump. There are also a couple of other sites dedicated to Parents of Type 1 children that may be able to provide good answers.

    Just tell him to eat a bag of sugar every day and he will be cured.
