Frequent testing: Blood glucose monitoring is so important in this age group as blood sugars can really fluctuate due to the toddler's diet and activity levels. For my young patients i prefer either basal Insulin with multiple daily injections or Insulin pumping. Very difficult to convince a 4 yo to eat when and what is expected. It may be difficult to determine lows b/w checks as they can't express verbally yet.
