Hello all, first time posting on a diabetes forum. My husband is a type 1, diagnosed 17 years ago, wears an insulin pump for 10 years now. He recently became concerned that our oldest son, turned 11 in April, has been exhibiting symptoms of diabetes so he would periodically test him in the morning (fasting) and before/after meals. We got some erratic results ranging from a fasting 25 to 168 2 hours after a meal aND days of total normals 100-115. I mentioned it in passing at my youngest Dr's appointment yesterday and they immediately got a glucose on him and tested his urine. His bg was 148 and he had glucose in his urine. They sent us home with a lab script. Fast forward about 90 minutes and the pediatrician calls me back to say they set up an appointment with a Pediatric Endo for this morning. The endo had us do state blood work 2 hours before the appointment and my son was fasting. At the appointment they said his A1C was 5.4 and bg was 116. The endo said because of his inconsistent readings at home and glucose in urine yesterday more testing was warranted. He has him scheduled for a glucose tolerance test and what ever the tests are called that test antibodies and beta cells. I guess my question is has anyone experienced a situation like this and what was the outcome? Is it possible it is just really early onset of diabetes and we only caught it because of my husband being diabetic himself? I'm open to any advice. Thank you!
