Maya is 12, dx'd at 2. She is on the Medtronic 640 pump. She is also very strong willed, to the point of being obsessive compulsive. She gave up ALL carbs, sugar, etc, a few months ago. Her current diet is a hard boiled egg at each meal. That is it! She has been hospitalised for DKA, but, even there, refused to even sip a Coke, to help flush out the ketones. She also has a needle phobia, and had to be anaesthetised so that they could put her on a drip. It is an ongoing nightmare. We can't force feed her, that is obvious. Any suggestions would be very very welcome. It is as though her desire to eat anything has just been switched off. We think it is more about having control, than actual dietary requirements. Help, anybody! Even when we tell her that she could die if she goes on like this, she says that that is fine. It is that bad. We don't know which way to turn. In every other way, she is a charming young lady, and is very hard working at school. It is the eating that is the problem.
