I’ve never spoken to an endo who has had a patient with both type1 and premature adronarchy. Our daughter is almost 7 but has had both since 5. The adronarchy slowed down enough not to need treatments but I observe it kicking up speed again.
If anyone has experience with this issue, please do chime in. I also suspect her hereditary predisposition to insulin resistance may play a role as one of the few ties researchers have found is between premature ad. And insulin resistance. Any info helps! Thanks
Sharing this site in case you haven’t already seen it:
Are the hormonal issues causing issues with managing her BG? I would imagine so, because just the everyday hormonal fluctuations of prepubescent kids and perimenopausal women cause problems. You might want to also contact the Joslin Diabetes Center to see if they have more information. I found this article by spelling it “adrenarche”, if that helps in your search for more information online.
I appreciate this is not the same…
I have dramatic differences in my insulin requirements depending on my hormone levels. I was diagnosed when I was four in 1977 and had many hypos and hypers going through both puberty and the menopause. The highs in particular, seemed to aggravate the experience I had with my period.
That may be what your daughter is experiencing. If she is very light, the differences she experiences at different times may be similar to what I went through and seemingly unpredictable. I found this helped me.
It may help to micro manage at least 3 days a month a different times during the month as you would to normally set basal rates. Once these are identified, she may find her carbohydrate ratios also need adjustment. By doing this slowly, it will be a lot less stressful and easier to get successful results albeit over a longer period of time.
It would be great to have a follow up, I wish you all the best
