From Ames, Iowa, USA:

Is there any criteria to say the honeymoon period is over? Isn't there something about total insulin doses a day equal to weight of patient in pounds or something like that? How can I determine that honeymoon period is over?


The definition of the honeymoon phase is clinical and reflects amount of insulin, ease of control of blood glucose and glucose variability from day-to-day. There are no uniform definitions ever proposed or in use, unfortunately. Your diabetes team should be able to look at the blood glucose levels and the insulin doses and make such a determination without too much difficulty.
