Hypoglycemia

My 20 month old son will wake up with sudden uncontrollable tantrums that can go on for hours and are only controlled by giving him food or liquid. Have you heard of this being linked with diabetes?

I am a 46 year old woman who has had hypoglycemia for approximately 25 years. I have been experiencing excess thirst, frequency of urination (especially at night), fatigue, weakness in the legs and arms, and most recently, rapid weight gain and fluid retention. Is it possible that I no longer have hypoglycemia, and I now have diabetes?

My 22 year old son was diagnosed with type 1 about ten months ago. This past weekend he had his first incident of insulin shock but it happened at about 2 in the morning. Luckily his girlfriend was visiting and noticed he was incoherent in bed. What happens next time if she’s not there and how can this happen while sleeping?

My 20 year old daughter has had diabetes since age seven. I can honestly say she has had at least 30 full blown seizures. What is the best way to handle a seizure? Most important, what if she were to have the seizure and no one was there to get her out of it?

About a year and a half ago, my three year old suffered a seizure. It was traumatic for my son, and the doctors never knew why he had one. His sugar was normal, and the only thing I remember about that day is that he was very, very upset. He was very fussy and cried a lot, then fell asleep and right after that he had a seizure. Does this make any sense?

I questioned the nurse about hypoglycemia and she said my daughter’s blood work was fine. Am I wrong in assuming it would be unless she was having a “reaction” or “attack” at the particular time the blood was drawn? Wouldn’t she have to have a glucose tolerance test done to rule that out?
