He has been in Trial Net for 3-4 years....testing negative for antibodies (this can happen too). He goes to CHOC and the results go to Trial Net. They are putting him in another trial thru Barbara Davis in CO. It covers the following: Major research interest is the Prediction and prevention of type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus including studies of the immunogenetics of type 1 diabetes, focusing on the activation and natural history of specific patterns of autoimmunity in genetically susceptible individuals. Genetic characterization of individuals from three groups: 1) identical twins of patients with type 1 diabetes; 2) a population-based Colorado cohort (identified by cord blood screening of HLA alleles of more than 30,000 newborns); and 3) unique families with multiple generations affected by type I diabetes. He has never done a glucose tolerance test. The endo/researcher/medical director/personal friend (very well known) called my daughter today on a Sat. They discussed for over 30 min. He told her that the grandson "is" in a honeymoon, as usually they don't catch it this soon. He doesn't have d diagnosis yet, but he will. Grandson is a much different case than normal. Endo said that most people don't catch it this soon. This process of high bs has already been 4 years for him. Endo reiterated that we leave him off insulin for now. He says that his a1c is still in an ok range. He worries that insulin would give him lows problems. BS at bedtime (4 hrs after eating--went to bed late) was 158. Fasting bs this AM was 123. His recommendation is to keep strict healthy low carb diet and do a1c monthly. We are getting second opinion asap with ped endo asap. If needed, there will be a 3rd opinion. It's the crazy hunger all the time and the skinny body and smallness that still bother me.
