Diagnosis and Symptoms

  1. Following an illness, my daughter's blood sugar has been variable at home. She tested negative for antibodies. What could be causing her erratic blood sugars? (17 Jan 2018)
  2. With blood sugars often in the 70s mg/dl [3.9 to 4.4 mmol/L], my daughter was also over 200 mg/dl [11.1 mmol/]]. I am concerned. What do you suggest? (23 Dec 2017)
  3. I have type 1. My toddler daughter seems to have blood sugar spikes with certain foods, such as grapes. She is overweight. Is her weight causing the spikes? Are the spikes a sign of type 1? (24 Aug 2017)
  4. My toddler has had excessive thirst and urination, but urine and blood tests were normal. I am concerned due to a family history of diabetes. What do you think? (13 Jul 2017)
  5. I have one daughter with type 1 and one with JIA and Ehler-Danlos. I have PCOS and their father has hemochromatosis. Is she at higher risk for type 1 diabetes? (14 Mar 2017)
  6. My daughter's urine tested positive for glucose, but her A1c was fine. She is scheduled to be re-checked in June. Should I be concerned or just wait until then? (15 Feb 2017)
  7. Can dehydration cause a high blood glucose with ketones? I am concerned that my daughter might have diabetes. (10 Jan 2017)
