Good Morning All, My 15 yr old daughter was diagnosed with T1 diabetes out of the blue almost three weeks ago, and after the initial shock and hospital stay we are now getting down to the business of managing her condition which I know will get easier but right now feels like a full time job! I have been quietly lurking on here for a week or so, reading posts and absorbing information, swinging between feeling informed and overwhelmed often simultaneously. I have so many questions to ask, I am not sure quite where to start, but here goes.....and many thanks in advance to any kind souls who have a spare minute to reply, your time and knowledge is greatly appreciated. -How long roughly should it take for her blood sugar readings to come in range? Does it vary wildly from person to person? Since her diagnosis on 16th Feb (and starting insulin) the same day she had her first reading below 7 yesterday morning before breakfast. Other than that she seems to sit around the mid/low teens with regular higher spikes. They are generally heading in the right direction from where we were in hospital (high 20’s) but I had the impression from the diabetes staff that a couple of weeks should see them in range? -Will these readings be doing her any harm in the short term? -Is there an optimum length of time to leave between injecting and eating? I don’t want to make this post too long so will leave it there for now. Many thanks!
