My dh has Type I (juvenile) diabetes. I told him about your post and he said he would urge your friend to have the symptoms checked out. He also said to watch for other symptoms such as very frequent urination, odd, fruity odor to breath, and sickness/vomiting, especially if meals are eaten "off-schedule," or contain a lot of carbs/sugar. Hope everything turns out ok.
