Well...my worst fear has come true. My 7 year old daughter has been diagnosed with diabetes. A 4 oercent chance that she would get this because I have Juvenile Diabetes. Are there any others out there that may have this same situation?
I am very puzzled by this Honeymoon stage. I caught her in the early stages and the cells have not completely died off yet. But, I have decreased her long acting Novolin insulin down to 3 units per day, when it initially was about 10 units total of both short acting and long acting. She does well for a while and then they start running extremely low. Does anyone know about the honeymoon phase? I am being told that it could be anywhere from a couple of months to a couple of years. She has pretty good control now. I control her's better than I do my own. But, I am awaiting the killing off of the cells and I do not know what to expect.
