Question:

From Bloomington, Indiana, USA:

My eight year old son has several headaches a week and is very hyper after eating a large meal. He also seems to crave sweets more than a normal child. It is almost as if he has to have sweets. Could this be a sign of diabetes? He did have some blood work done a couple of years ago, but the results didn't show anything. He has also had several CAT scans for his headaches with no results.

Answer:

Those symptoms are not likely to represent diabetes. See symptoms of diabetes.
