Subacute Presentation of Type 1 Diabetes

The management of type 1 diabetes will depend on the patient's age and the acuity of the diabetes at presentation. Since there is usually no family history of diabetes, or diabetic experience at home, and given the fragility of the new-onset diabetic state, many children or adolescents presenting with type 1 diabetes require hospitalization to initiate and teach glucose monitoring techniques and to begin insulin treatment. The indication for hospitalizing a newly diagnosed child who is not drifting into ketosis depends on the availability of outpatient educational resources and the clinical judgment that the patient can be closely monitored and the family appropriately advised while developing the capabilities of diabetic self-management.
