    Hi,
    How do you know when your honey-moon period is over? The dr. said it could be between a week and two years! how will I know it's over?

    The simple answer is when your insulin needs increase a great deal from what they currently are. Usually children who are in the honeymoon phase use very little insulin and their blood glucose numbers are, for the most part, relatively controlled.

    There is a formula people can also use to determine it, which is basically the amount of your total daily insulin divided by your weight.

    So for example if you use 15 units of insulin total per day and weigh 100 lbs, that would be 0.15. Anything under 0.5 is considered being in the honeymoon phase.
