Question from York, New York, USA:
Our son was diagnosed last year at age seven with type 1 diabetes. he has had very good HbA1c results of 7.2% and 7.4%. We average one high a day over 200 mg/dl [11.1 mmol/L]. He is having difficulty concentrating at school. He is now in second grade, and his reading is at the beginner level. His teacher and I our considering him for a 504 plan. Could his learning disabilities be connected to diabetes?
It is unlikely that his learning difficulties are related to diabetes, especially if he is not having frequent low blood sugars.
