Teen refusing to do insulin


Hi I have a 19 year old who hasnt done bolus insulin for at least 2 weeks, don’t know if she has even done blood sugars worried about her but when I mention it she shouts at me saying I don’t trust her don’t know what to say or do


Don’t envy your position (having a teenager) and you are not going to win easily. The thing about not trusting her suggests she has a plan. It looks like you will have to watch very closely and at the first sign of trouble call an ambulance. Good luck and I hope things work out well.


This is a no win war. You have to be firm on the consequences. Better inform the doctor too.
