specialneedsmom, this sounds like a question for a doctor who specializes in diabetes (not the GP). Does your daughter (or family member) have an endocrinologist that you can call on her behalf? If not, ask the GP for a referral.
Or is the endocrinologist the doctor who has taken her off insulin?
It does sound like the honeymoon period.
I have many online friends with type 1 diabetes and some of them did go through the honeymoon period.
Also, there is a diabetes type called 1.5 or LADA (latent autoimmune diabetes in adults). LADA is a slowly progressing variation of type 1 diabetes.
Only an endo doctor will be able to tell you.
