So when I read stories of adult diabetics on this forum, everyone is always talking about how awful they feel when their bg goes up. So now I’m wondering, why doesn’t my 8 year old feel it when her bg is high? She’ll can be in the mid 20’s (20 mmol/360+ mg) and she’ll just keeps on trucking. And so that leaves it up to me and her siblings to notice her behaviour change - she can become mean and argumentative or just wild and then we check her blood and sure enough, it’s high!
Obviously we are working on having it never happen in the first place, but it does happen at least a few times a week and I just wish she would notice it and feel it, so we could catch it earlier.
