I have read in many threads about the "honeymoon" period and that things change when it's over. My 13yr old son was diagnosed almost 3 weeks ago and his BG is finally stabilizing. We have gone from a 1:6 ratio at breakfast to now a 1:8 and from a 1:8 ratio for all other meals to a 1:10. We also have stopped increasing his Lantus and been able to go down to 17 units. I know it's still just the beginning of this journey and I'm curious about what this honeymoon thing is and what it's like when it's over. He was in the beginning stage of DKA when diagnosed with a A1c of 12% and BG of 315. Luckily my background as an RN made me aware of the symptoms he was having, excessive thirst and going to the bathroom all night long, so I didn't experience the horror of finding him unconscious. There is so much to learn even though I was a nurse, when it comes to my child it's a totally different experience.
