My 5 yr old son was just discharged from the childrens hospital last week, for over a week for several reasons, but I took him in to emerg because again his blood sugars were high and he was vomitting uncontrollabley, even when he stopped eating, he was burning up, slipping in and out of consciousness and just not being himself and because he had went from 54.5lbs to 43.2 lbs since christmas break I was already concerned and using my own glucometer to check his blood sugars and my urinalysis sticks to check for blood, I checked his urine and he had a large amount of ketones 3.9 then he started vommiting in his sleep and I ran in flipped him over cause his was on his back still sleeping, so I changed from my pjs and took him in, while we were in the triage a cough began and ofcourse they assumed he just had a cold or flu, and wouldn't believe me that the cough literally just started after he vomitted in his sleep, I brought the urine with me and told them to check it and his blood sugars!!! *** In short after much wasted time and frustration, they ended up checking the urine, he was admitted because his oxygen saturations were 82, and that was on oxygen tubes, while he was being worked up for admission they checked his blood sugar and his random was 18.4mmol/L As the days progressed and his illness too, his fasting glucose was 19.5 mmol/L because he already had a referral to pediatric endocrinology for 3 days from that very day for some high glucose readings at home on my glucometer not to mention he went from 54lbs before christmas to 46lbs jan 11 and then another 2 lbs lost 2-3 weeks later, plus constant thirst, bed wetting, night sweats and most importantly mommies intuition!!! His blood sugars would not go down after 2 days and so the consulted the ped endo on call and the team came down and basicially convinced us he has type 1 diabetes and he needed insulin injections, they gave him insulin for 4 days and on the 5th morning his readings were like 6.5mmol/L and they decided they were gonna not give him insulin that day and see what happened, his numbers ever since have been pretty good, the lowest was fasting mornings for a few days of 4.2mmol/L.... so they now don't know whats going on????? He's not wetting the bed anymore he actually pee's about half the amount he used too, I've read about Honeymoon phase, cause the doctor said shes never seen this, but Ontario Canada is a pretty small area I figured maybe somewhere around the world maybe someone has seen, heard of or experienced this. So what I'm mainly wondering how soon has anyone ever heard of a honeymoon phase kicking in or has anyone heard, dealt with or read about my sons situation, but any info, advice or ANYTHING would be very much appreciated I'm losing my mind!!??!?!?
