Diagnosis and Symptoms

Question from Birmingham, England:

I know of a child (12 years old) who has recently been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Why is she frequently listless? Does this have anything to do with the high level of ketones in her blood/urine?

Answer:

Probably, and high sugars can cause symptoms of thirst and headaches.
