Hey there! I was diagnosed 5 months ago with type 1 at the age of 26. Now on a pump and recently noticed my insulin needs increasing. I think I am coming out of my honeymoon. What is yalls story with coming out of your honeymoon? How long does it take to come out of it? what other things should I expect?

I was diagnosed in January of 1985, but I did go through a honeymoon phase about six months later. I recall that it lasted somewhere around 90-120 days. It was nice while it lasted as I only had to inject once per day with my Humulin R and NPH mix, but I don't recall there being any big issues when it was over. I think the blood sugars told the story and then it was back to shots every 12 hours.

My daughter entered the honeymoon phase about 5 months after being diagnosed. She was rarely need her humalog for about 60 days then as fast as her diabetes hit us, she plummeted out of her honeymoon phase.

I don't think I had a honeymoon phase. I had a 24 hour period of disbelief then jumped right in feet first. I believe in facing something head on in order to get a grip on things. I have friends/family members with diabetes so I had lots of help and support right from the start. I don't believe in putting things on the side while I wrap my head around it. Makes things easier for me. Good luck to you.
