Is the Honeymoon over?

At first I thought it was the insulin pen, but I seem to be using it according to directions. Could the Honeymoon be over? Jaxson's BG has been consistently high after meals and before bedtime... as if the insulin isn't effecting him at all. Obviously adjustments need to be made across the board.

D Mama's and Papa's: How will I know when the Honeymoon is over??

P.S. Pardon the mess here as I'm once again in the middle of remodeling. :)


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE THAT PIC! So appropriate.

    My daughter didn't have a honeymoon. By the time she was dx, DKA was in full swing. Any beta cell reserves possible were completely kaput, and she was literally within 24 hours of death.

    As I understand it however, insulin needs skyrocket and the numbers become pretty stubborn.

    Sounds like your thought pattern could be spot on.

  2. Same as Wendy. Justice never honeymooned as he was in DKA. But sounds like youre spot on. Btw your header is awesome!

  3. Nate just left his honeymoon behind after 16 months --- his basal rates have doubled. Good luck!

    I Love the new look - - - - it is greatness!!

  4. I really love your new design, Deanna. The photo is perfect :).

    As for the honeymoon, we are smack dab in the middle of it and I don't see any light at the end of teh tunnel. It's a crazy ride and I am ready to get off!!!!!! You may be getting close to the end, but don't be surprised if D throws you a curve ball and goes the other direction. Just the way D is.

  5. Love the new look!

    As for the honeymoon, I'm convinced Elise is still in hers 2 1/2 years later.

  6. The new look ROCKS!!!! Love the pic, love the set up!

    Joe never honeymooned either - SORRY...I am of no help here. Good luck lady...know we all are here for the venting that I am sure will ocurr as the honeymoon starts it's rocky ending.

  7. The blog looks great! Who knows when the honeymoon ends? It is pretty much a mystery...but I do know that when my boys need more insulin, they JUMP to higher numbers. It isn't a small climb like we expect, it is...they are usually low 100's before bed to all of a sudden...they are usually 300's before bed. BAM! They need more insulin! Good luck with the adjustments!

  8. Thank you all for sharing your experience. We made some adjustments and numbers are looking better (for now). Looks like the honeymoon is still on.

  9. I'm a little late on commenting here and I see that your numbers are improving, so I'm happy about that. Just wanted to say that I'm lovin' the look of your blog!!
