My 15 year old daughter has become severely insulin resistant over the past two weeks. This happened once before about two years ago. Though she's a type 1, the doctor prescribed Metformin to help remedy the resistance. It worked wonderfully until this last bout. My daughter has no infection, but her insulin requirement has literally doubled. Even then, she's running in the threes. And yes, we've considered bad insulin, examined her pump and changed infusion sites. We are fighting keytones and we keep going up on the insulin. Is there a such thing as too much insulin? Or do we keep slowly raising the basal rate until she is normalized? It's very scary to see the basal rate doubling over such a short period.

How do I handle a 12 yr old not testing & bolusing? She almost went DKA last week and just doesn't seem to care. Her latest thing is lying about her number. Saying it isn't as high as it is so I won't get mad.

My 4 year old was diagnosed a little over a month ago. I am just curious as to what she is going through and feeling. She has speech issues and cannot convey to me how she is feeling in detail. Can someone explain what highs and lows may feel like for her?
