My daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on Nov 29, right after Thanksgiving. She is 5' 7" and weighed 125 before the diagnosis. She was pretty thin. Over the last month, she has put on 15 pounds. She is checking her blood sugar & gives herself insulin to cover the carbs she eat. I told her the weight gain would probably level off soon, because she was a little underweight. I also think we need to pay more attention to how many daily carbs she eats. Is that right? She is also very active & plays 3 sports.
