Back to Ask the Diabetes Team Behavior

Behavior from 2009

  1. How do I know if my 14-year-old son has an eating disorder? He lost 16 pounds over the summer and has kept it off. We struggle to get him to eat. (22 Dec 2009)
  2. Now five, my daughter has become defiant, rebellious, devious, and, at times, violent. Many times, this is when her blood sugar is high. How do we get the behaviors under control? (24 Nov 2009)
  3. Since her diagnosis with type 1, my daughter has been throwing angry fits and it's affecting her school. Is this something caused by her taking insulin? (9 Oct 2009)
  4. Diagnosed in June, our son is not eating much, playing at the table. How can we encourage our child to eat so that we do not have to worry about nighttime lows? (14 Sep 2009)
  5. On two recent occasions, my son has taken "vacation days" from diabetes, skipping insulin on those days. How should I deal with this? (23 Jul 2009)
  6. I am a case worker with two young children who have type 1. In separate homes, both children are sneaking foods. What should the parents do to stop this behavior? (22 Jul 2009)
  7. Eating a low carbohydrate diet with food every two hours, my daughter's symptoms have improved. Is she destined to get diabetes? (22 Jun 2009)
  8. My teen niece was diagnosed with type 1, but given no treatment plan, not even a glucometer. She refuses to acknowledge the diagnosis. What can I do to help her through this? (17 Jun 2009)
  9. I am concerned about my recent forgetfulness. Could the lows I had when younger be causing this? Is this common in others with long term diabetes? (9 Jun 2009)
  10. My teen has started a week long fast. He plans to consume juice or milk only for lows. What are the risks involved? (2 Jun 2009)
  11. Diagnosed with type 1 seven months ago, my three-year-old resists insulin injections, often refusing to eat to avoid getting a shot. How can we help him accept the injections? (30 May 2009)
  12. How can we get our daughter to stop sneaking food? Suffering from constipation, our daughter's celiac tests have been negative. What else should we have checked? (28 May 2009)
  13. My daughter has constipation. She tested negative for celiac and was taken off dairy products. What else could we try? (28 May 2009)

  15. Our teen daughter took an overdose of insulin two days ago and just doesn't want to take care of her diabetes. Is such behavior typical of most teens? (22 May 2009)
  16. Following a very low blood sugar, my daughter was very confused. What can you tell me about this behavior? In the past, she would get violent when low. (21 Apr 2009)
  17. Recently, my neighbor has begun to repeat what others say, verbatim. Is this an indication of a habit or something else? (4 Apr 2009)
