Diagnosis and Symptoms

  1. For a month, my toddler has been urinating only once a day, or less. Her breath smells like ketones. Could she have diabetes? What do you advise? (24 Jan 2016)
  2. My daughter tested positive for two antibodies and has had intermittent elevated blood sugars. Have there been any successes in reversing the antibody titers? (27 Aug 2015)
  3. In 2009, my daughter tested negative for antibodies, but recently had a high blood sugar and has tested positive for GAD-65. Will she definitely develop diabetes? (23 Jul 2015)
  4. I suspect my son has acanthrosis nigricans. I have been advised to take him to a pediatric endocrinologist for tests. What is your opinion? (10 Nov 2014)
  5. At times, my son is lethargic and vomits. His blood sugar goes up some if he eats. Does he have diabetic tendencies? Should I have him seen by an endocrinologist? (27 Aug 2014)
  6. Recently, my daughter has had blood sugars as high as 200 mg/dl [11.1 mmol/l]. The doctor did not check her blood sugar. Should I take her to the Emergency Room? (11 Jul 2014)
  7. I have had type 1 for 21 years. My son is close to a diagnosis of "prediabetes." What do you suggest we do to keep the disease from progressing? (11 May 2014)
  8. When my young son had blood work, his blood sugar was fine. There is a maternal history of type 1. Should I be concerned? He is going to have a glucose tolerance test. (14 Apr 2014)
  9. My young son had a glucose tolerance test with "normal" results. Today, he was 195 mg/dl [10.8 mmol/L] an hour after eating. Should I be concerned? (26 Mar 2014)
  10. After a diagnosis of type 1, our daughter was re-diagnosed with MODY4 and put on glyburide. Her control is good. Could she still have type 1 and be in her honeymoon? (19 Feb 2014)
  11. Is my low testosterone level the reason I have been diagnosed with type 2? (31 Dec 2013)
  12. My daughter has had chronic diarrhea for a couple of years. We stopped dairy and gluten. She had an A1c of 6.4, borderline glucose readings. What do you think this could be? (23 Dec 2013)
  13. I am taking an online UCSF course about diabetes, but I find parts of the texts too advanced. Can you explain the results of my son's antibodies tests? (12 Nov 2013)
  14. My son was diagnosed with type 1 three years ago, but his chart, which I see at his check-ups, says he has type 1.5. What is that? (22 Oct 2013)
  15. My toddler was diagnosed on Monday. The doctors are not sure what to do, have given him some insulin. They want to discharge us today. Should I ask for a referral to a pediatric endocrinologist? (11 Oct 2013)
  16. Do you have type 1 if you test positive for all three antibodies? Can you test positive for antibodies later because you have been on exogenous insulin? (18 Sep 2013)
  17. I have diabetes and am worried my children will get it. So, I checked my son's blood sugar when he was acting "off." It was actually low. How concerned should I be? (28 Aug 2013)
  18. I have just been diagnosed with diabetes. Both my parents and older brother have type 2. Is it hereditary? Is it curable? (4 Jun 2013)
  19. I am a school nurse with a newly diagnosed teen patient who has fluid retention in many parts of her body, caused by insulin per her doctors. I have never heard of this. Could there be something else going on? (30 Apr 2013)
  20. Is there any link between hypoglycemia and undiagnosed type 1 diabetes? (8 Apr 2013)
