My question is this- Can there be any connection between juvenile diabetes and behavioral difficulties or changes?? I know of a 3 year old who exhibits the regular symptoms of juvenile diabetes (thirst, urination), but can also be a behavior problem or difficult. The mother doesn't see it, and won't have him tested because he can be so difficult. Any non-invasive tests to determine diabetes??
I COMPLETELY DISAGREE WITH THE DOCTOR. My son's behavior problem is the only reason I took him to the doctor to be tested for diabetes. He is a very loving, funny little person but, one day while arguing with his father he reached up and grabbed his dad by his collar to argue with him.....I knew something was wrong. He had had behavior problems for about two years at school, I overlooked it as just a growing boy. But, when his behavior changed with his loved ones, I knew something was physically wrong with him. He is a type 1 diabetic with a thyroid problem. I will never again look at kids as bad kids, until the doctors clear them of all physical problems.
