Question:

From Flin Flon, Manitoba, Canada:

My son, diagnosed with type 1 diabetes a week ago, has blood sugars e ranging around 13 mmol/L [234 mg/dl], but I am guessing in a couple of more weeks he will hit his honeymoon period. When should I start expecting him to hit lows? When should I be checking his sugars in the night? I am scared he will go low in the night, and I won't know. Do lows always happen during the honeymoon period?

Answer:

Mild hypos are common during the honeymoon period, but severe hypos are very rare. You should follow your diabetes team's advice about testing during the night.
