My Teen Type 1 son (in honeymoon) just announced that his best girl buddy was diagnosed today with Mono. This is after spending the day with her yesterday and drinking out of the same water bottle. Incubation period is 30 days.
Can anyone give feedback on this? If he does get it what may come his way? What to watch for? Anyway to support the immune system? Any direction? Any advice?
What I have found out scouring the internet is that since the spleen may be affected, that steroids are often given which throws off the blood sugars. Fever may throw off the blood sugars. Perhaps the illness itself may move him out of honeymoon?
Just getting ready to respond to this nasty virus if it strikes!
