Daily Care

My daughter is not on any medication for the diabetes, and they say she is in the honeymoon phase. Lately, however, her sugars are beginning to come up, but she still sometimes has hypoglycemia in the morning. Her pediatrician thinks she would benefit from the pump so the insulin can be given in small doses and is concerned that her endocrinologist hasn’t decided what to do.

My daughter who had celiac disease along with diabetes is having stomach pain, her blood sugars soar with exercise, she feels achy like she is getting the flu, tired and as she says has a “blah feeling”. The doctors are working together and doing tests, and her symptoms don’t seem to follow gastroparesis because she is high after eating not low, and we are desperate. Please give me any ideas you have.

I currently am on a pump and, over the last week, my blood sugars have been spiking extremely high, although not every night. I strained several muscles in my back about a week ago, and I have allergies. Could this be from the strained back muscles and/or the allergies? Could it be something else? Why is it affecting me just at night?

My Mongolian friend injects her daughter with the same dose of insulin every three hours. She has no means of checking her blood sugar. Is this method normal? Has she received faulty medical advice?
