Honeymoon phase in Type 1

12/28/2009

Question:

I was wondering what is the longest a honeymoon period in a Type 1 or 1.5 adult has lasted?

Answer:

I can't tell you what the longest is - the typical textbook answer is on the order of 4-12 months for type 1 diabetes.  I am not aware of any literature using the term with so-called "type 1.5."
