Daily Care

I have type 2 diabetes, and, on my last trip to my primary care physician, I had gained some weight so I went straight to our local health club and started working out on a daily basis. My morning readings went up so I started monitoring twice a day. Now, no matter what time of the day, they are within the same range. Why is this happening?

My four year old daughter’s last A1c was 9.3%, but in the past few weeks, she has been having several lows. Do you think her pancreas (by some miracle) may be producing insulin? That is the only explanation I can figure for making her sugar go so low. Is there some kind of test that can tell if it is?

I have type 2 diabetes, and my glucose readings are nearly always the same (5.2-6.2 mmol/L [94-111mg/dl]). Is it possible that sometimes it takes longer for the blood sugar level to go higher? Is this okay?

We started out giving our seven year old daughter (diagnosed with type 1 diabetes six months ago) two shots a day, but have eliminated the evening shot because her nighttime lows were too low. Her blood sugars are in range. Should I be concerned with only giving her the one shot a day?

My three year old daughter’s (diagnosed two months ago) blood sugars are out of control, and her endocrinologist will not allow me to adjust her insulin. Is there any reason not to adjust her dosage if she’s so out of control? Isn’t adjusting the insulin dosage the best way to care for her?

Recently, my 14 year old son (5 feet 10 inches tall, 158 pounds), who has had type 1 diabetes since he was seven, has had higher A1cs (about 8.5%), and a blood test also showed that he is “insulin resistant”. What causes the insulin resistance? How can he overcome it?

Our four year old daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes about five months ago, and we have had trouble, for brief periods, controlling her blood glucose but always manage to regain control in less than a week. At worst case she runs high for three to four days in a row. How significant is this to her long term health?

Is there new information that would be a rationale for this practice? For a blood sugar of 80 mg/dl [4.4 mmol/L] or less, take 2-3 units of Humalog insulin and two or three glucose tablets before lunch. Repeat as needed.
