Dear CP Mom
A new diagnosis of diabetes can be difficult for a patient to accept, especially in men. His change in mood may be him trying to adjust to the diagnosis. Adding to this, his levels at diagnosis were very high, and patients can adjust to the higher levels, but when they are lowered, then their body needs to adjust again. I don’t think it is the insulin, as this is not a usual side-effect. I think the most likeliest issue is him adjusting to the diagnosis and would suggest talking to his doctor about it, as he may need a referral to a psychologist to help him come to terms with having diabetes.
