Diagnosis and Symptoms

Question from Bloomington, Indiana, USA:

My eight year old son has several headaches a week and is very hyper after eating a large meal. He also seems to crave sweets more than a normal child. It is almost as if he has to have sweets. Could this be a sign of diabetes? He did have some blood work done a couple of years ago, but the results didn't show anything. He has also had several CAT scans for his headaches with no results.


Those symptoms are not likely to represent diabetes. See symptoms of diabetes.
