From United Kingdom:

My nine year old daughter has had type 1 diabetes since the age of three. She has had a couple of night tremors before but, recently, they're getting worse. There's never a week that goes by that she doesn't have a bad night tremor. They are quite frightening. Afterwards, she doesn't remember what has happened and she complains of a headache. Is this related to her diabetes?


It would be difficult to determine what the "night tremors" are that you are referring to without much more information. Your best resource for determining if these may be related to her diabetes is likely your pediatrician. There are several possibilities including nightmares, night terrors, hypoglycemic seizures and more.
