>>>No, its not like longer- acting insulin in the body, which is injected
>>>subcutaneously and contains substances to slow down the insulin action.  
>>>The
>>>  insulin the body produces doesn't "hang around" it's released directly 
>>>into the
>>>blood stream.  Think of the body's own insulin as being like "short, very 
>>>fast
>>>acting insulin".  The action of NPH insulin  (one of the older longer 
>>>acting
>>>  insulins) is prolonged by the addition of protamine obtained from the 
>>>"milt" or
>>>semen of river trout.  NPH is found in Insulatard and Mixtards type 
>>>insulins.
>>>So the body's own insulin, when its produced, has an immediate effect.  
>>>In the
>>>early stages of diabetes the pancreas may not produce enough insulin, or 
>>>just
>>>not quick enough.  This results in raised blood sugar levels immediately 
>>>after
>>>meals.  In some people, in the very early honeymoon stage, their blood 
>>>glucose
>>>may only be raised post meals and shortly afterwards return to normal 
>>>levels.
>>>  The pancreas can still produce enough insulin even when a high 
>>>percentage of
>>>the
>>>beta cells are damaged.  Unfortunately sooner or later, as the 
>>>destructive
>>>process continues, the beta cells will no longer be able to make enough 
>>>insulin
>>>to cope and the blood sugars will become higher and higher.  It is 
>>>possible,
>>>especially with children that are developing diabetes, that an illness 
>>>triggers
>>>higher blood sugars than usual, illness, even mild colds can mean that 
>>>the body
>>>has a big increase in insulin needs.  So frequently children are 
>>>diagnosed with
>>>  diabetes after the onset of a illness. Once the illness is over then 
>>>the body's
>>>insulin needs would reduce and the body may even be able to still make 
>>>enough
>>>  insulin to prevent higher blood sugar levels for quite sometime. In the 
>>>end the
>>>  result is the same. The beta cells are destroyed but sometimes this 
>>>process can
>>>take place over years but usually the honeymoon period is around 6 months 
>>>to a
>>>  year. The older the child is at diagnosis the longer the honeymoon is 
>>>likely to
>>>be.
