My son will be three tomorrow. For the past few weeks, he's been voiding a huge amount of urine, has been terribly thirsty, has occasionally been vomiting for no known reason and has been pretty cranky. This morning, I decided to try a fasting blood glucose on him. Yep- 195.
I'll take him in to the clinic tomorrow for an A1C, but based on the symptoms and the blood sugar, I'm pretty sure we have a reasonable picture. Luckily, our diet is pretty decent in general, though we'll have to be more careful going forward.
I am comfortable dealing with diabetes in adults- particularly type 2, but am not as comfortable with type 1 with such a very early onset.
Anyone have any suggestions for things I really need to know before this appointment or going forward?
