Honeymoon Phase

There is a period of time following diagnosis when most people experience a “Honeymoon Phase” in which their remaining beta cells still function and the body is able to produce some of its own insulin. The Honeymoon Phase typically lasts a few months to a year post-diagnosis. During this time physicians will support blood-glucose management with low-dose insulin treatments. Eventually, the remaining healthy cells will die off and insulin dosages will need to be increased.
