My daughter was acting really off after an afternoon nap. My husband, who is a type one diabetic, tested her glucose and it was 248. She hadn't even eaten recently, she was going on 3-4 hours of not eating because she was taking a nap. We made a doctors appointment for the next day (today) but then when we went to the pharmacy to get a home A1C test, just to test it for ourselves, the pharmacist said we shouldn't wait until tomorrow and to take her in now. Her glucose when we got to the ER was in the 130's, which the doctor said was still a bit up there for a two year old who hadn't eaten in almost 4 hours. When they ran her full blood work and A1C, it all came back normal. Her levels were back down to normal; 98, and her A1C was 4. The doctor wants her pediatrician to do a glucose tolerance test tomorrow (today) and told us we need to keep an eye on this. We are going to see her pediatrician this morning but since she woke up so early, I was not able to keep her fasting for the possibility of getting her in for a tolerance test today.
We were all left kind of scratching our heads. Did we just test at the most random time when she just so happened to have this random, out of nowhere spike? Or what else can this mean?
