My son is a type 1 diagnosed at 19. My grandson, age 8 is on a very strict diet as they say he is in "honeymoon". He eats organic, no sugar, little carbs. His mom is very strict with his diet. He is hungry all the time and is very, very small and very thin. His younger brother (19 mos younger) is a head taller than him. My grandson's fasting bg is 117, A1C is 6.7 and c peptide is .8. My daughter spoke to a friend, adult endo/hospital researcher and he said that his pancreas is quitting and that it isn't time for insulin just yet. She is getting in to see ped endo as soon as possible. One other thing that I have noticed is that he holds his heart when playing soccer, and he says that it is beating really fast. Is anyone familiar with any of these symptoms? Would insulin put weight on him and help him grow? Would insulin help him with the hunger?
