    There is no pre-diabetes for type 1. Pre diabetes is pre type 2 diabetes.

    If the blood sugar levels your daughter has after meals aren't high enough to get her diagnosed with diabetes, then she doesn't have diabetes, nor does she have pre diabetes.

    What are the blood sugar levels you are seeing in your daughter that make you think they are high? How long after meals are you testing? A random blood sugar (ie not a fasted blood sugar) has to be over 11.1 mmol/l to prompt further investigation into diabetes according to world health organisation diagnostic criteria, so it's entirely normal for non-diabetic people to spike up to 11.1 after eating.

    If you are concerned about her risk of developing type 1 you could look into trialnet. This is a clinical trial safety net for anyone aged 4-40 who has a sibling, parent or child with type 1. They will test for the antibodies associated with type 1 diabetes and if they are present they will keep a very close eye on blood sugar to catch type 1 before it develops into a dka situation. They may also have clinical trials running to see if there is benefit to very newly diagnosed type 1s taking medication to extend beta cell life.

    The best advice I can give is to be careful with what she's eating. Things like rice, bread and potatoes will raise her bg numbers. Have her eat more of the other foods like meat and vegetables. I wish you and her good luck!

    Have a look at preventT1D.org
    I don't know if it works but it can't hurt! I am type 1 and so is my dad and my daughter has had some elevetated sugars. I've been giving her the fish oils and she was already taking vitamin D. I haven't given her aspirin as she is only 21 months but I'm trying to follow the anti inflammatory diet, not strictly all the time but as much as possible.

    TrialNet is a probably the best idea if someone is at risk of developing T1DM because of family history. And T1DM may have an onset that is not as abrupt as one thinks

    The onset can last for months or years according to trialnet.

    What we see are days of normal sugars and then slightly elevated and then normal again.

    How long do you see patches of normal sugars for?
    We have days where my daughter eats 30/40g of carb and after 2 hours is still at 100 and others where the same food and amount causes her to be in the 80s at 2 hours. We also get occasional and currently short lived peaks of 140-150. However given all I've read and my history I am pretty certain we are on the type 1 path.

    I think all you can do is watch and wait - which is really hard I know.

    They aren't very elevated. Only slightly and the overall average is fine.
    Currently she is returning to normal levels quite quickly and on her own so there's no way she could have insulin I wouldn't have thought as she would be hypo.
    Have you spoken with a dr?
    I think you can only keep an eye on it and perhaps reduce some of the carbs although she isn't eating very high carb anyway and children need some carbs I think.

    Hii i think prediabetes doesn't exist in type 1 diabetics and chances of getting diabetes for the kids is only 5percent if mother is type 1 and if father is type 1 it is 10percent if both are diabetics the chances are little higher compared to normal values.. But type 1 is not completely genetic related its mostly mostly autoimmune although there is some relation with genetics
