A little background... at age 2 BG of 350+ put us in hospital for weekend. One more reading of 200. No meds, it normalized. Now she is 8 and says she wakes up feeling sick and dizzy. FBG are elevated. A1C is elevated, but not in diabetic range.
After posting before about my daughters odd readings I started monitoring her BG closely. I wanted to arm myself with a week's log before seeing her pediatrician next week in hopes of getting referral to pediatric endocrinologist. Maybe she is fine. I am wondering now if there is nothing wrong at all.
Other days I have monitored her her BG were higher (sometimes 140 ish). But lately they are on the low side of normal. Weird!
Over the past few days this is what has happened...
The rest of the day ALL her readings were in the low 100s even after a meal.
The rest of the day her sugars were in the 80s or 70s.
The rest of the day low sugars 60 - 80
She had a second A1C in 4 months and it came back 5.7%.
The one hour result is way too high and is indicative of diabetes.
You should tell a pediatric endocrinologist these results. I beleive that your daughter has diabetes. Maybe not so severe yet (it can progress over time). She should be following a lower carb diet and being closely monitored.
