Question:

From Banton, Romblon, Phillipines:

My daughter, who has diabetes, experienced shaking of her body with her eyes rolled back. Is this normal for a child with diabetes?

Answer:

No. Such a phenomenon is never normal whether one has diabetes or anything else! If you are asking if such a thing can happen with diabetes, then the answer is yes, but likely because of an abnormally low glucose. I think she had a hypoglycemic seizure. Did you check her glucose? Do you have a glucagon emergency kit? You should be in touch with her diabetes team to discuss this.
