| | symptoms of a 6 year old
I am researching diabetes only because I have had several people encourage me to do so, as my son (who is only 6) has had several symptoms.
I am not sure though. But here they are:
He continues to wet his pants, sometimes often times during the day, however not so much during the night. He is reminded to go at least once an hour, yet still has accidents.
His poor feet are crusty and cracked with some bleeding in some cracks, especially if we neglect to rub lotion on them everynight.
He shakes his writsts and hands and says "he can feel them better" when he does it.
He got very ill for 5 straight weeks a couple of months ago, and was finally diagnosed with mono. But his symptoms where lethargy, weakness, high fever that started each evening around 5:00 or 6:00. He is better now, but that was strange.
He blinks his eyes and rubs them often to see the TV, but inconsistantly. Sometimes he is fine, and he passes eye exams.
He can NOT make it through a day without a good nap.
I borrowed a blood sugar test kit from a friend and so far he has a reading of 103 yesterday 2 hours after dinner and 150 today 2 hours after dinner.
Can anyone tell me if diabetes is really a threat for him, or am I reading too much into all this?
thanks for any info or opinions.
