From Colorado, USA:
My son (5 years old) is constantly thirsty, has a problem with accidents and when he has an open cut it takes longer than usual to heal. We have just begun to suspect diabetes. Is this a viable worry and how do we find a pediatrician in our town who specializes in this disease?
First things first: contact your son's physician, and get a blood sugar test done. If it's elevated, ask your son's physician for a referral.
