I’ve posted a few times about my concerns with my toddler daughter having a few elevated sugars. (150s) immediately after eating - always back down after two hours.
I spoke with the GP about my concerns and the GP advised to take a day with several readings and if it looked like there was a problem they would run an hbA1C. However the GP also says there is no problem until the FBG is 130 or more and PP are consistently into the 200s.
This is my results. The GP says fine. I don’t know if they still look a bit high for someone of not quite two years olds. I’m not sure what the hbA1C would be because she rarely seems to drop below 90. Also because she quite often eats again before the end of the two hour period it is difficult…she is a grazer. She doesn’t have huge meals.
Fasting blood glucose, 8am - 85
Breakfast (doesn’t really eat breakfast) some fruit, a weetabix and some milk. Approx 25g carbs.
1 and a half hrs: 90
Snack: approx 15g carbs
Milk: approx 15g carbs.
2 hrs after milk - 87
Didn’t really have much lunch, just had half an apple and a quarter of a sandwich.
Evening meal: ate quite a bit, approx 40g carbs, including small ice cream
1 hr: 120
2 hrs: 86
Snack - half a piece of wholemeal toast and some milk, approx 25g carbs
2 hrs - 90
Do they seem a little high? Overall? Total daily carbs were around 130g I think but she doesn’t eat much all in one go.
Is it worth me paying privately for an hbA1C or is the dr correct? I don’t have huge faith in GPS for diabetes. I know of so many people who are told it’s nothing and then it is…
