Question:

From Cairo, Egypt:

My nine year old son, who had type 1 diabetes for 14 months, has one new tooth growing and his blood sugar is relatively high these days. Do you think that it is related to the growing of this tooth?

Answer:

You're right -- you don't need to wrack your brain any longer! Your son's tooth troubles have surely caused the increase of his blood sugar, and provided the highs are confined to few weeks, they are not dangerous. Nevertheless our advice is to try always to adapt someone's insulin regimen to these new needs in order to keep blood sugar under the best control. Ask your son's diabetes team for further help.
