When we left the hospital a month ago, Andrew was taking over 16 units of Levemir and 16 units of Novolog insulin per day. As the weeks went by, he was experiencing low blood sugars which resulted in lower insulin needs. I can't believe it, but currently he's only taking .5 units of Levemir per day PERIOD! We've been able to completely discontinue the Novolog all together.
The diabetic nurses must hate me by now because I'm constantly asking them if Andrew could have type 2 instead of type 1. See, at the hospital they told me that he was showing signs of both type 1 and type 2. I asked them to run an antibody test to decifer which one it was. They took the blood and said that they would let me know in a week or so. Three weeks later, THEY LOST THE TEST!!! They don't have any idea what happened. Hmmm....Ok, so I asked if they could do it again and they told me to ask at his first endo. clinic appointment. Unfortunately, that's not until the middle of February.
I'm in the process of having my pediatrician track down the tests needed because I feel like a hamster in a hamster wheel trying to get someone at the hospital to help me get these tests reordered. Have any of your children experinced a honeymoon? If so, can you please share them with us.
