From Madrid, Spain:

My son is five years old. Over the last three years, his numbers are between 7.2 mmol/L [130 mg/dl] and 8.2 mmol/L [148 mg/dl]. For the last year, for lunch or dinner, once or twice a week, I give him a chocolate candy. Of course, I count carbohydrates and, after the meal, his numbers are like always, no higher than other times. Is it okay or can it be a problem for my son in the future?


If blood glucose levels, A1c and blood lipid levels are still good, I see no problem allowing the candy.
