  1. Since getting a Depo Provera shot for her PCOS, my daughter's blood sugars have remained between 300 and 600 mg/dl [16.7 and 33.3 mmol/L]. Is this from the shot? How long will this last? (30 Apr 2013)

  2. The endocrinologist has recommended we put our daughter on a pump before she starts kindergarten in the fall. Our daughter is not interested. What are its advantages compared to pens? (30 Apr 2013)

  3. I am a school nurse with a newly diagnosed teen patient who has fluid retention in many parts of her body, caused by insulin per her doctors. I have never heard of this. Could there be something else going on? (30 Apr 2013)

  4. My teen son required several treatments for a low blood sugar two days ago. Since then, his blood sugars have been running higher than our usual tight control. Does this signify the end of the honeymoon? (30 Apr 2013)

  5. Despite having had it for over 30 years, I have never taken care of my type 1 diabetes. Is it too late to start taking responsibility for it? (9 Apr 2013)

  6. Is there any link between hypoglycemia and undiagnosed type 1 diabetes? After shovelin snow, my son "looked low," was 55 mg/dl [3.0 mmol/L] according to my daughter's meter. Should I be concerned or is this common in people after exercising? (8 Apr 2013)
