From Pomona, California, USA:

My two and a half year old son was diagnosed nearly six months ago, and we have yet to see the "honeymoon" period everyone speaks of. Is this abnormal?


The honeymoon period is extremely variable both in onset and duration. Fundamentally it depends on the extent to which the autoimmune process has already destroyed the islet cells at the time of diagnosis.
