      At the beginning, when people are diagnosed with type 1, they usually are still making a lot of their own insulin- that's called the honeymoon period. It can last a few months or it can last as long as a few years. But it ends.
      However, people who are not making insulin also can get lots of lows (I sure do) because of the insulin they are injecting. It is very hard to get the doses right all the time.

      My 4 yr old was dx Jan 5. Symptom was thirst. Fasting bg was 173. Tested 212 @pediatrician. Off to childrens hospital he went. When he arrived his bg was 98. His dad and I were told by the nurse that he probably is okay and doesn't have diabetes. Overnight monitoring of his food intake and the effect it had on his bg, along with a 9.3 (3 mth avg of bg level) were enough for his diabetic doctor to give him a type 1 dx. His stay in the hospital was 4 days. Now that he his home we are still confused. We are constantly treating lows. How is it that he can be type 1 diabetic and we are always treating lows? His humulog has been decreased twice already. He is not on long acting, just humulog. We want to believe that something else is the cause for his elevated bg. It breaks my heart having to prick his little fingers several times a day and to have to give him shots. I have never been more devastated. He is such a sweet little boy. He's handling this much better than I am. He is a trooper!
