Three Year Old
My child is now 3 years old. Some four months earlier, one evening we tested him for blood glucose using One touch Ultra glucometer, since we had some doubts. He was showing high values (400+). However the next morning, it came down to (140). Ever since, this trend has been noted. Mostly the values in the evenings are in the 150+ or 250+, sometimes 350+ range. But the morning values are in the 75 - 130 range. The question is whether this is a diabetic case. Last evening , the value was 413. Today morning fasting value was 88. Also , he is not showing much external symptoms recently. He also suffers from some kind of prolonged dyspepsia.

Take your child to the doctor urgently.  This high blood sugars are definitely diabetes.  it needs to be managed.  If he sometimes still has normal blood sugars this means that there is some pancrease function still.  If he can be put on appropriate insulin as soon as possible he may still retain some of this function for longer and it will make his management easier.

Do not delay seeing a docotr and insisting on testing.  This could be life threatening.
