I'm just wondering if anyone else has an experience like my daughter's. We've always called her "indestructible" because she never gets hurt (though she tries hard enough...), and never gets sick. With the exception of the diabetes related symptoms she had for quite a long time, the kid has rarely been ill, and when she is, it doesn't last. This morning, for example, she started feeling achy and weak, and was running a slight fever. I thought for sure this was going to be our first experience with a diabetic sick day. She turned all pale and could barely walk (yes, her bg was okay, tested at just over 100). So she rested on my bed for about two hours and whalla, she's feeling completely fine now.
And this is completely typical behavior. If the family gets a cold, the rest of us are sick for a week, and Sarah is sick for a day (at most). So it started me thinking, is it possible that her immune system is more active than normal?
Does anyone else have a similar experience or any information on whether this is typical of type 1 diabetics?
