Hello everyone, I am new here. My son is 12 and has been dx'd for a month. I have been "lurking" for about 3 weeks and finding a lot of useful information. Thank you all for giving me a feeling of comfort. It is good to know that I am not alone. We have been adjusting okay but are having a lot of lows. We have adjusted his carb ratios many times. We rarely have to give any corrections. He is on lantus/novolog. His lantus has also been adjusted many times. He is taking this all very well - better than my husband and me. I have a few questions, and hope that you all can give me a better insight. I know that everyone is different and that the answers will be different too. But, at least I will have a general idea... How long does/did the honeymoon period last for your child? How do you know when it is over? Is it normal for him to complain of leg pains when his numbers are normal? I know that he is going through or getting ready to go through puberty and has grown a lot - 2 1/2 inches since his dx. Which probably should cause pains in his legs.. He gets very shaky when his numbers are low and can identify this feeling, but there are days when he has good numbers and is shaky. I think this maybe a sign that his numbers are getting ready to drop as this seems to be the pattern, but does anyone else have this? It really upsets him when it happens. And the last question is: Is there a place on this site that explains what the common abbreviations are? Sometimes when I am reading, I have no idea what they are. Others I have figured out... Again, thanks in advance for all of your answers and for helping us through this journey!
