[IP] Delayed menstration

Delay in menstration and secondary sexual characteristics are not uncommon
with IDDM, especially prepump era girls. Because of the low carb diets and
marginal nutrition of diabetic girls before the pump all maturation was
slowed as was growth and athletic ability. A lot of the kids were getting
along on 1400 calories a day, some 1200. not enough to grow and develop
normally. that slows the development clock way down. Unless the kid has
pituitary failure she will have her period. Spot and Christine
