    1. What was the book the was recommended for children and adolescents with Diabetes. We have the Pink Panther and Think Like A Pancreas?
    Any insight into what is happening here. We are reacting to the changes,but I always like to know why. After increasing insulin like crazy for no reason we could find,except maybe puberty,or the end of the honeymoon we have had to decrease just as dramatically. I'm thinking her pancreas is making a brief comeback,and soon will get"tired"and will take a break again.
    Any other thoughts?

    Could be puberty related. Could be growth hormones which are now backing off. Could be the moon. Could be the weather. Could be an illness her system was fighting. Could be diabetes.

    Sounds like a perfect description of a T1 girl in puberty.

    LOL...Could be the moon! :D

    Oh so true!! I've given up trying to figure out why. It seems with the on the onset on puberty, anything can make sugars wonky....including the moon. ;)

    Puberty - dd started in 4th grade with periods of increased insulin nneeds due to growth hormone causing insulin resistance, then as soon as it started would stop and need to decrease basals. When her periods started she's insulin resistant about a week or two before her cycle, then lower blood sugars and insulin needs when her period starts. Was alittle bit easier when her periods started - i could look at the calander and see ehats going on. Hang in there!

    Love this. I try explaining this to people: "her body does what it wants, no two days are ever the same"
