  1. Born with transient neonatal diabetes, my two-year-old no longer requires insulin. Today, her blood sugar was 1.2 mmol/L [22 mg/dl]. For a nondiabetic, is this still hypoglycemia? (31 Jul 2011)

  2. Given that one action of insulin is to enhance energy stores, how will glucose be available on an increased or urgent need if energy stores are resisted? (31 Jul 2011)

  3. My son was put on Humulin 70/30. Can he take Lantus and short acting insulin? (31 Jul 2011)

  4. Diagnosed four months ago, my young son tested negative for autoantibodies. Should we have the tests done again? Is it possible to have type 1 diabetes without any autoantibodies? Are there any other tests he should have? (20 Jul 2011)

  5. My daughter has been put on Advantan cream for eczema. Can this cause high blood sugars or insulin resistance? The prescribing doctor does not think so. (19 Jul 2011)

  6. I took my son to the pediatrician who was concerned about my son's elevated blood sugar. I then consulted with a geneticist and a pediatric endocrinologist. Are they worried about diabetes for no reason? My son doesn't really have any symptoms. (13 Jul 2011)

  7. My cousin's daughter was recently diagnosed with diabetes and put on injections three times a day. We are worried. What should we do? Should we travel to Delhi for treatment? (13 Jul 2011)
