Question:

From Alberta, Canada:

I understand how illness can cause blood glucose to increase, but why does a child sometimes have low blood glucose readings that are hard to raise during an illness?

Answer:

Low blood sugars in a sick child may be due to an inadequate carbohydrate intake or to temporarily too much insulin for a diminished food intake.
