I have a 5y/o girl who was recently diagnosed with diabetes.
Is it possible to need insulin sometimes but not others if she’s eaten “correctly”? Does stress play a role? What is she has lunch at noon and doesn't get another real meal for at least 24 hours? Maybe some crackers, granola/protein bar, peppermints,etc but she’s trapped in a post-Katrina-esque situation from about 1700 until the next afternoon/early evening.
She has a pediatrician with her. How often would he need to check her blood sugar during that time? How often would she need insulin?
