Depends: Every child faced with the diagnosis of diabetes responds differently. Younger children often cope well, adjusting to a new routine with repitition. Older children, especially teens, sometimes rebel. Be supportive and encouraging. Work with your child's endocrinologist on how you can be supportive. They often have wonderful age-appropriate resources to support your child, your family, and you!

Possibly: Menopause can cause a variety of metabolic changes including a general decline in sensitivity and secretion of insulin. These changes can worsen diabetes. Post-menopausal women also have a decline in metabolism making weight gain easier. So, continue to exercise regularly, eat a healthy diabetic diet, take prescribed medications, and meet regularly with your md to keep your diabetes controlled.
