Our 10 year old daughter was diagnosed with type one diabetes approximately eight months ago. From time to time, she has stomach pains - most frequently in the evening before bedtime. Her blood sugar levels at that time vary but are usually in the 100 to 175 range. She is not constipated nor does she have gas. Any thoughts or inpu would be helpfult. Is this common?
My 13 year old daughter, who has been a diabetic since age 3,was just in the hospital with pancreatitis and DKA. A doctor can do a simple blood test to see if her lipase levels are elevated. Has she been checked for Celiac?
my 19 month old son was pointing to his stomach to night and saying owe owe (meaning something hurts). He was only diagnosed for type 1 diabetes two weeks ago, do you think you would take this as a warning sign of something like your daughter had?
