Is there any benefit in testing my child at home regularly to see if they will have a recurrence of diabetes?

If concerned about a child’s health in this way then speak to a doctor. They will look for the symptoms of diabetes such as drinking a lot, passing lots of urine and feeling tired. It may not be beneficial to the child or the family to do regular testing as it might increase anxiety so it is a fine balance. Some families don’t test and some do.
