From Miami, Florida, USA:
My 11 year old son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes three months ago and is going through the honeymoon period. I know this is a trivial question but he loves basketball. Is this condition going to affect his height?
Not at all. To the contrary, a longer honeymoon might promote, trough a better insulinisation along with a better metabolic control, an increase in a child's height development and velocity.
