My grandson was diagnosed in August and despite rigorous watching, testing, etc. his sugar is still up and down which is scary. However, the thing that concerns me the most is now whenever he has just eaten he cries with stomach pains. Is this normal in type 1? Because he's so young it's hard for him to communicate his needs and we're stumped as to what to do to help him.

My son is now four and dx @ age of one. The stomach pain has gone away. he had it in the begining also. I think it's just there body getting ajusted to the insulin. As far as his sugars going up and down that will continue for awhile yet. A toddler grows so fast that his insulin levels will have to be changed often. i'm not an expert but i hope what i know can help.

That's right.. My son was diagnosed @ 1, too, and at first even for a couple years, he copmlained of sever stomach aches. Now it's not the same.. He doesn't complain he has stomach aches, so much anymore, but he does say "i have a baby brother in my belly"

My duaghter still complains occasionally of stomach pains with meals, and occasionally before meals. We have shared with our Endo and he does not feel that it is a concern at this time, although he wanted reassurance that she was regular. She has had these stomach aches off and on since her diagnosis a year ago. I would definately make sure that you are communicating it to your endo and keep track of how often it occurs as well as what part of the day (before or after meals, or injections etc)

I appreciate now knowing someone else is going thru this experience. Does your daughter say what hurts and/or did your endo give you a reason for the pains. It defnitely occurs right after eating but sometimes right before too.
