Back to Ask the Diabetes Team Behavior

Behavior from 2008

  1. My mum had a foot ulcer that is healing well, but she now has no appetite and her neck is very stiff. Should I be worried about kidney failure? (27 Dec 2008)
  2. After years with body image problems, my teen daughter has developed bulimia, something she wants to "self medicate." Where should I seek help? (24 Nov 2008)
  3. My teen daughter, diagnosed with type 1 in 1996, often neglects her diabetes care. How can I help her get back on track? (21 Nov 2008)
  4. Diagnosed with type 1 in July, my toddler still wakes about every two hours to get a drink. Is this behavioral or related to his diabetes? (5 Nov 2008)
  5. My son has had severe mood swings for two years. Are these related to diabetes, with which he was just diagnosed? (22 Sep 2008)
  6. I'm a school psychologist with a student who refuses to follow her diet. Are there any behavioral intervention plans/suggestions you could provide to help us? (10 Sep 2008)
  7. A noncompliant teen at our school refuses to comply with his care plan. Counseling and reminders have not helped. What do you suggest? (29 Aug 2008)
  8. How can I get my son to get involved with groups or other children who have diabetes? (27 Aug 2008)
  9. Since her diagnosis, my teen daughter has been non-compliant. She has been in a coma three times. Would a pump help regulate her blood sugars? How can I help her? (25 Aug 2008)
  10. I have an unspecified eating disorder and mild gastroparesis. I purge or bolus too much insulin to get my stomach to feel empty, but then may be low. What else can I do? (18 Jul 2008)
  11. My niece, who is now staying with me, doesn't take care of her diabetes. What kind of help is there out there that can help us deal with this? (17 Jul 2008)
  12. Since his diagnosis over two years ago, my son has had excellent control even though he tests only two to four times a day and doesn't always take his meter along. Is he just lucky? (12 Jul 2008)
  13. Recently, my son has had increased emotional outbreaks and headaches. His blood sugar has been elevated at these times. Is this related to the change from Humalog to NovoLog? (12 Jul 2008)
  14. Diagnosed with hypoglycemia at the age of four, my now six and a half-year-old often behaves erratically and is moody. Could she by on the path to developing diabetes? (4 Jun 2008)
  15. Can an insulin pump be used to manipulate blood sugar levels or used to set blood sugar levels either higher or lower than normal? (3 Jun 2008)
  16. Because it feels like food is sitting in my stomach, I have been purging a little of some of my meals. Given my past abdominal trauma, could this be gastroparesis? (16 May 2008)
  17. Our son is not checking his blood sugar when needed, causing extremely high blood sugars, and lying to us about checking. How can we help him? (14 May 2008)
  18. My friend is not taking care of her diabetes. When I've seen her meter, I saw nothing but elevated blood sugars. Those reading are infrequent. What can I do to help her? (5 Apr 2008)
  19. My husband has pre-diabetes and is having mood swings and anger. I am trying to monitor his diet. He takes half a tablet of metformin twice a day. Does he need other diabetes management? (29 Mar 2008)
  20. I have a patient with type 1 who has behavioral issues. How can I determine how much his diabetes is affecting his behavior? (21 Feb 2008)
  21. My seven-year-old behaves very poorly at school when his blood sugar is low. Yesterday, he was unresponsive, but his blood sugar was fine. Could this be diabetes related or something else? (29 Jan 2008)
  22. For the past several months, my teen daughter has been forgetting to bolus for meals and snacks. How can I encourage her to do so? She is annoyed by my reminders to do so. (28 Jan 2008)
  23. My newly diagnosed daughter has started to act very hyperactive, like her sister who was diagnosed several years ago. Can insulin have an effect on the way children act? (27 Jan 2008)
  24. My son keeps getting up during the night and binge eating. At first, he took insulin, but, now, he does not. What should I do? (8 Jan 2008)
