      WittsEnd... I believe your best course of action is to go to a family therapist. It's usually not my first response..but when we attended the Friends for Life conference this year I met two wonderful therapists who were also diabetes educators and they work with families dealing with issues involving chronic conditions. You might want to search for this kind of therapist. I don't believe any child should have therapy by themselves but go through it with one or both parents and possibly with siblings as well. Hope things improve.

      Sometimes with out-of-control yeast infections within the body, the fugus can release toxins that affect the brain and behavior. With the high sugar issues of diabetes, it might be a possible cause of some of the behaviors.

      I am not a parent. I am an autistic man from an autistic family (myself and four brothers diagnosed; parents undiagnosed but diagnosable) who has done a lot of parenting for my autistic younger brothers, and who has experience working with children (plus a teaching degree).
      I also have the experience of having had special needs not addressed in school (or elsewhere) and exploding at home, and I also attempted suicide before the age of ten (as well as at the age of eleven, but not since).

      I'd rather not post this in the forum (I'd rather put it in a private message or email, but you haven't enabled those). Here are my thoughts about your post:

      How much of this do you think has to do with diabetes?
      Has she ever attended a diabetes camp or been around other people with diabetes + celiac?

      I do think switching to needles would likely not be as bad as you think.

      Have you tried a behavior plan? If so, how does she respond to it?

      What you are describing, if it is happening with lots of different triggers, sounds to me a lot like a very overwhelmed child who does not have good strategies for calming herself down, and who also has learned over the last few years that tantruming at home (by threatening the insulin pump) gets her what she wants, at least to some degree.
