Aches and Pains

Question from Mission, British Columbia, Canada:

My 10 year old daughter has had type�1 diabetes for two and a half years, and a year and half ago, she started suffering from bad headaches, which make her vomit, at least once a week, but her blood sugars are well within the normal range when these headaches occur. We have to go to the hospital and receive lots of drugs for 8 to 12 hours to get rid of the headache. We're just looking for any information on dealing with these life-altering headaches.


This sounds like childhood migraines. There are several medications to consider, but you should talk to your daughter’s pediatrician, diabetes team and perhaps also a neurologist to get specific information that might keep her out of the hospital.
