Hello everyone. My son was diagnosed with type 1 in September 08. He is now just over two years old. We've been managing his diabetese fairly well over the last few months. However, yesterday we started noticing some very strange behaviour. Last night, when we put him to bed, he was beside himself, screaming at the top of his lungs. After about an hour, we got him settled down and asleep. Today, my wife says he followed her around the house all day saying "mommy, mommy, mommy" over and over again. His appetite is way down today. We adjsuted his insulin, but he is still on the low side of his target (he's hovering around 3.9). We put him to bed tonight, and same situation. Screaming. He was absolutely frantic. Tearing his room apart, barely able to talk he was so upset. We would go in his room and try and calm him down, but he would pace the room, not wanting to settle down, not wanting to take a bottle, none of the usual things that calm him down. We've managed to keep his blood sugar from crashing using glucose tablets (it was a fight just to get him to eat them). We'll be taking him in to the doctor tomorrow to see what he says. We're wondering if anyone has had similar experiences, or some insight into what may be happening. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thank you both for your input.

We had a rough night, but we think we finally figured out the problem. As it turns out, he was very constipated. Unfortunately, whenever anything happens, we tend to associate it with his diabetes. In this case, it appears that his change in behaviour had nothing to do with his diabetes.

He is doing much better this morning. Other than being very tired, everyone seems to be back to normal.
