My 9 year old was diagnosed with T1 in early June 2008. Her weight was 26 kgs at the time (which is fine for her height in my part of the world). Incidentally, she hadn't lost weight before diagnosis. She was a poor eater before diagnosis, but has started eating much better since - more frequent and healthier meals. She probably has less fats than before, though since I never really measured before, it's hard to tell. Her endo seems to think she's doing alright, though the dietician wants her to put on more weight. She has about 240-260 carbs a day, maybe 3-5 tsp of fat. She usually has a very active day. We give her a supplement twice a day with milk (Resource Diabetic) but no other supplements. She's definitely grown taller in the last six months, but her weight is about the same or 0.5-1 kg more at best. Is this normal or should I be worried? I thought many kids put on weight after going on insulin, but I really don't know what to think, specially since her endo and dietician seem not to be on the same page.
