Wondering if there are parents on here who have had their child diagnosed with Diabetes that could tell me what prompted them to have their child tested....I had gestational type 1 diabetes while pregnant with her. I was extremely careful about my diet. My husband was diagnosed with diabetes two years ago and has been able to get it under control with oral meds, diet and exercise(they wanted to put him on insulin immediately) . I was diagnosed with insulin resistance and placed on Metformin a couple years after having our daughter. Both of my grandmothers passed away due to complication of diabetes.
So....our daughter's eating habits over this last summer became crazy. Her appetite seems never ending...she is not overweight, in fact it used to be difficult to get her to eat. Yesterday we tested her sugar and it was 352....I looked at my husband with panic in my eyes...he is a Paramedic. He says..."have her go wash her hands really good and we will do it again. Awwww....it was 189, still not great but so much better. She had eaten lunch an hour prior. So this morning I took a fasting and it was 107...going to take it again in about twenty minutes...that will be two hours after her breakfast.
Any ideas? Am I being paranoid.....going to call her pediatrician tomorrow and ask for a A1C test....
