When should I be concerned about my childs blood sugar without the diagnosis of DM yet?
My child is 10 years old and has excessive thurst, hunger, and urination. My husband developed DM @ age 11 yrs old. My daughters blood glucose fasting has ranged from 86-120 and her gluose 4 hrs after eating have ranged from 140-165. Should we be followed by a pediactric endocrinologist and should she be started on medication to prevent damage to her Beta cells?

Discuss your concerns with your child's doctor.  They will need to run testing to see if your child has DM or not.   A glucose tolerance test may be very helpful in this diagnosis.  Normally doctor's like to have blood sugar readings done fasting and 2 hours after eating a meal.  Voice your concerns!
