Diagnosis and Symptoms

Question from Temecula, California, USA:

During my seven-year-old's annual check-up, the doctor did a urine test and found high levels of ketones and glucose. Blood work was done non-fasting. Her blood glucose was 135 mg/dl [7.5 mmol/L], insulin was 26 and C-Peptide was 4.0. An ultrasound of her pancreas is scheduled for February 16. We are waiting for our insurance company to approve a referral to a pediatric endocrinologist. She has been taking Singulair since she was two. Might the medication create symptoms that would be similar to diabetes, such as pancreas problems?


There is no data to support this class of drugs as having any effect on the pancreas.
