Honeymoon

Every month, before her period, my daughter runs a low-grade temperature and feels terrible. Could this monthly fever be triggered by hormones and result in her immune system being “turned on” full force against her islet cells? The fever goes away almost immediately at menses and she feels immediately “fine”. Don’t you think this scenario is possible?

My daughter is 5 1/2 and was diagnosed when she was 2. My understanding is that, based on her weight, she should be using an average of 20 units of insulin a day. She doesn’t even use 10. Is it possible that she can still be honeymooning after 3 years?

My blood sugars have been within normal ranges (pre and post meals) for the past three weeks with only diet and exercise. Does this sound like a honeymoon period? Is there anything else I should be doing or any other tests I should be having done?

I am 18 years old and have had type 1 diabetes for a year. Recently, my blood sugars have been more responsive to my regular doses of insulin, and I’ve had to lower my insulin dosages to prevent reactions. Is it possible that I could be having a sort of “honeymoon” after all this time of being diagnosed?

My son is 2 years old. A month ago, we detected all symptoms of diabetes and went to hospital. Now he needs only 4-5 units/day of NPH insulin. Is this the period called the “honeymoon”? What can we do as parents to preserve the rest of the islets that are still working?

My 13 month old daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes three weeks ago, and she now seems to be going into her honeymoon phase, which I was does not usually happen when the children are this young. Could you tell me if there are any books that could tell me more about the honeymoon phase so maybe I could understand it better? Is it at all possible that she may be able to come off her insulin at some point?

Does my daughter have type 1B diabetes? What causes diabetes? If the honeymoon phase is prolonged, will it help? What other solutions can you suggest? Does nicotinamide help?

My husband was diagnosed with type 1 in early July 2004. He has since stopped using both Humalog and Lantus. Could something else have caused his hyperglycemia?

My four year old child was diagnosed as type 1 diabetes three months ago. After two months of four insulin injections daily, now he needs only two injection per day. Is this his honeymoon period? With an appropriate diet, can he stay without insulin?
