I am a 16 year old male, diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of two and I have noticed that I haven’t really been maturing as much as my friends. I know that all people have there own growth cycle, but this is getting ridiculous. I’ve heard somewhere that insulin is a natural steroid. If this is true does it have anything to do with it? If not what?
My daughter has experienced a lot of changes in the last four months due to the onset of puberty. Our concern is the difficulty she is having with heavy frequent periods as well as difficulty sleeping. Should I inquire about thyroid issues, anemia or sleep studies? Or should we continue looking at blood sugar patterns?
