Since joining this site, it's bothered me that my daughter has really low basal needs (and TDD) compared to other kids her age and weight. She was diagnosed with type 1 at 1 1/2 years old and will be 5 in october. I know everyone is going to tell me that all kids dosages vary but hers just seem very low. That, and she requires a lot more bolus. Her basal right now is 2.8u which I will have to decrease because she's had a bout of low blood sugars at night. I was told that her TDD makes it seem like she is borderline honeymoon, but it's been over 3 years and just can't seem to think she'd still be honeymooning. A couple of the characteristics that make me think she might have MODY: -her low basal needs in conjunction with high bolus needs. It seems as if most kids have a higher basal rate compared to bolus. If I upped her basal, she'd go low all the time. -I can rarely get her to stay below 200 2 hours after she has eaten a normal meal, but she does come down after 4. She could start at 80 and it doesn't matter. They say people with MODY have a hard time once they go over 144 while eating (I'm guessing they become more insulin resistant) - When pregnant with her, I had borderline gestational diabetes. I was just told to watch my sugar intake. My a1c is still normal, it's 5 (only reason I know is because I'm pregnant again) If she DID have MODY, would it even make a difference? Would she still be on insulin or would she be put on a pill? What tests can I ask the doctor to do that would be covered under insurance in the US? I was going to ask for a c-peptide but I don't even know if that would make much of a difference either. When she was diagnosed, no one explained to me about the antibodies she may or may not have or if they even tested for them so after 3 years, I still don't even know if all the tests that should've been done- were done. What I was told was that her blood sugar was too high at dx to just be from a virus and that she had t1d. Maybe they were trying to dumb it down... I don't know. I don't want to put her through tests if the differences between mody and type 1 are insignificant and nothing would even changed if it were found out she had mody instead of type 1.
