Diabetic ketoacidosis has a high mortality (death rate) and risk of complications. The prognosis depends on how quickly it is recognized, the underlying medical conditions of the individual, and the underlying precipitating causes of the diabetic ketoacidosis.

Hi HJ yes also heard that even in honeymoon period you still can have
Spikes, I'm now beginning to think if he had a pancreatic infection that week....we will get to the bottom of it very soon

Yes Silinde need for a little insulin, but not stopping

good news. right now as of today is he not a diabetic. He should continue to monitor his blood sugars and see if they continue to remain very stable as has been the case for months. Also hopefully Dr will monitor his c-peptide every 3 mo and A1c to see how it compares to previous results. That one autoantibody that was positive last month the ZnT8, is only reason i see to continue to monitor his glucose and diet. If he is consistent in his daily total carb intake and knew how many carbs he ate a day on average, that would be even better. If he notices he is gradually running higher glucose levels over time or his A1c is jumping or is feeling more sluggish, then have him discuss with Dr. To be even more pro active, he can lower carb intake and increase fat and protein

Hi HJ he is very good with his diet, very low carbs...the ZnT8 test was positive making the specialist thinks this was consistent in type 1, but she hasn't seen my son since late Apr/May, so keen to see her now.
He checks everyday his BS everyday, he says he likes to do them, he finds them reassuring.
His readings are all in the normal range (MY WORDS non diabetic as they are) , but he is awaiting to speak to the Specalist.
I'm sure he could still be in the honeymoon stage maybe??

That is one long honeymoon. Is he and the newlywed traveling around Europe, into the south pacific, and over to America? Sounds like an expensive get away. The best part is there is no end date for the honeymoon yet so have him tour the world several times. I bet his Dr will be delighted with his glucose levels all without medication.

Yes I was diagnosed as a diabetic in December of 1966 where I was hospitalized in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit because I was kind of late being diagnosed and ended up in a diabetic comma.

After about 2 months I had recovered enough to be released. Fortunately for me I have very few memories of that time.

What's your thoughts please???
I have never been able to, and with each decade of having the disease, it has progressively worsened; and that is with insulin.
I take more of it now than I ever did; and I think that my pancreas and kidneys are both weaker, because of the disease.
