Hello, Catherine!

If we consider type 1 diabetes mellitus (judging by your story, a sudden onset, weight loss, the onset of diabetes with hospitalization - all these symptoms indicate type 1 diabetes), then yes, indeed, diabetes mellitus can begin suddenly against the background of complete health.

The causes of diabetes mellitus are numerous: genetic predisposition (and often diabetes mellitus is transmitted not from mom and dad, but in 1-2-3 generations is a recessive disease), viral infections, autoimmune aggression, stress, and so on. Most often, several factors play a role in the development of T1DM.

After the debut of DM1, the pancreas reduces insulin release, and the dosages of insulin need to be selected, this process takes a certain time. Indeed, the sugar will not immediately be good. Within 1 year after the onset of T1DM, the need for insulin changes in a person, and approximately one year after the onset of the disease, we enter on constant doses of insulin.

Therefore, now begin to follow a diet, learn to adjust insulin dosages (in some hospitals there are diabetes schools or you can find such schools in nutrition and insulin therapy on the Internet).

If your husband follows a diet and is fully focused on treating diabetes + he will regularly visit an endocrinologist, then sugar will actually return to normal within 1-2 months after the onset of diabetes.

The most important thing is to follow a diet, control sugar, adjust insulin in time, and visit an endocrinologist.
