My 16 month old daughter is perpetually thirsty and has soaked diapers every 90 minutes. Normal height and weight. She has always been like this, but I worry since her 4 year old sister is Type 1, so I occasionally test her blood. Yesterday morning she awoke at 47. Today she was at 48. No symptoms of hypoglycemia. No virus. Monitor seems accurate with her sister. Should I be concerned?
These are lowish sugars but not inherently worrying in a young child who has
fasted all night and is asymptomatic.
