Don’t sweat the small stuff!!! Your son’s only 8 weeks old. I wasn’t even diagnosed until I was 8 years old. Yes, I had problems and wasn’t even put on the diet until 3 years ago. Today you’d never know I had any problems. Get him on the diet and keep him on the diet and he’ll be fine. The important thing is to get him on the diet early and make sure his levels stay where they need to be. You’ll do fine You’ll find it’s not nearly as bad as you think.
