Have I told you guys how awesome you are lately? Well, you are. Your comments on my last post really helped me focus in on the issue... and Beth gave me some pretty interesting info. I've copied and pasted it from the comments section:
I don't know how it works in little ones, but some of the research speaks about the lack of production of Amylin along with insulin, which is a hunger-regulating hormone. For adults, there is now an injectable drug called Symlin which slows gastric emptying and helps create a feeling of fullness. I know a few adults who use Symlin and they say that until they started using it, they had a never-ending, constant sense of hunger (even after finishing a meal).
We have our endo appointment this Friday, and both Fred and I are pretty sure her A1C will be up from the 7.0 last time. I just keep telling myself that we have been through a lot of junk in the last 3 months (the full-strength insulin debacle, major growth spurts, illnesses), and it has nothing to do with how good of a job my husband and I are doing.
And keep telling myself, and keep telling myself...
What is it they say about being our own worst critic?
