My 10 year old son, who has had type 1 diabetes, has had a terrible odor to his hair lately and his blood sugar has been up and down for about six months. Is the hair odor part of puberty? Do kids with diabetes tend to have “heightened” problems during puberty?

My 10 year old daughter has had Type 1 diabetes since she was 8. She is in full blown puberty and her levels have been high. Last evening, she didn’t want me to watch her do her dinner shot. We found out that she has been giving herself almost twice the amount we tell her to do. What do we do?

I’m worried because I am 13 1/2 years old, and I have not got my period yet. Also, I have been told that people with type 1 diabetes cannot have children. I feel sad occasionally, lonely and begin crying for no particular reason when I am by myself. Please give me some advice.

Recently, my son has been experiencing nighttime and afternoon high blood sugars that require temporary basal increases and corrections. Why is this happening?

My almost 13 year old daughter is on an insulin pump, and I can hardly keep up with her increasing basal rates. For several hours during the day, her basal rate is up to 2.9 units/hour, and it seems that her basal rates have been steadily increasing since she started the pump six months ago. Can puberty increase insulin requirements to this extent?
