SuFu, Ph.D. replied to Tracy K's discussion '2nd honeymoon?'
"Honeymooning is based on how much residual beta-cell mass is left. Once the beta-cells are gone, there should be no endogenous insulin secretion anymore. So I would doubt that it's a 2nd honeymoon. If you want to know for sure have your doc…"

2nd honeymoon?

I was just wondering if anyone knows whether or not it is possible to go back into the honeymoon phase after being finished with it for quite some time. my 6 yr old boy was diagnosed with type 1 nearly 2 years ago, started honeymooning shortly thereafter as was completely finished honeymooning over a year ago (I believe he sarted leaving the honeymoon phase 6 months after diagnosis. at our appointment over a year ago they said he was finished that phase). But over the last few weeks he keeps…See More

Hi Tracy - I noticed that you are in Manitoba. We're in Winnipeg! We just moved here from Ontario a couple of months ago. My son is 6 and was diagnosed last year at Christmas. My husband is also type 1 - late onset. I would love to get more information about your experiences with the pump.

Thanks for comment on my page - BTW - Ontario is closer then BC to get pump coverage! Not sure if there is work out in either provinces for you - the big question of the day for most of us hanging onto our jobs during these economic days! BTW, I got some samples of a 32g long pen needle. Looks scary when you start to get ready to jab - but felt nothing! I am going to see if I need a prescription for these from endo, or just have pharmacy order them up for me (covered 100%). Tell your hubby, get pen refills, the portion that holds them (like fancy fountain pen ) - are given for free - as they charge you enough for the insulin pen refills (but like you say - he's coverage 100%). Very indiscrete way to inject with the good juice of life that keeps us happy !!!

Hey Tracy - saw your reply about using pen needles being less painful. I totally agree with you - and I use the shortest needle on the market - and I think it's 32g - with the teflon coating - it's so smooth. Due to insurance in the States - most of my American friends still use needles to inject their insulin with. I sometimes think we Canadians are spoiled with what we can get with our medical needs, but then there are others that would beg to differ. All I know here in Quebec, we have coverage for pen needles as long as your doctor prescribes it. Not sure what it's like in Manitoba (every province differs). Wierd that your hubby has never gone over to the pen needles! As soon as I could, I did (have been diabetic since age of 7).
Take care!
