Patrick is 14 years old, recently diagnosed as diabetic, requiring 27 units daily, sugars go as high as 1,000. After one month on program, he no longer needed insulin. However, during the summer, he ate junk food and sweets often and did not drink many fluids. As a result, he started with the insulin again until he realized that he had to correct his diet to a smart, healthy diet. He is relieved that he will not be dependent on the needle.
