Hello! I am new here and worried. I have 3 little boys. My oldest was diagnosed with T1D at 18 months and my baby was just diagnosed a couple months ago with T1D at 14 months old. My middle son is 3 and is having some concerning symptoms.
He was begging me to check him (feeling left out) one evening so I did. He was 170 3 hours post meal. So I checked him again and he was 173. I Went into panic mode and started testing. His fasting blood sugars were never below 100 but never above 120 for about 2 weeks. He was consistently 120-180 throughout the day and early morning hours (midnight-2 am) has hit 229. He stayed in the 200s for 3 hours one night, but hasn’t been that high since. His pediatrician did blood work and everything was normal, antibody negative but his freet4 level was elevated. His fbg was 83, a1c 5.3…
We were told to keep a log book and have an eppt with endo soon, but miraculously for 2 weeks his numbers were normal…never above 106! And then starting 3 days ago he has been elevated again (130-140s consistently).
Yesterday we did a 2 mile hike and played at a park. He didn’t eat much before and after the activity we had a 15 carb meal. He ate it and fell asleep immediately (4:30 PM and slept until 7 this morning). 2 hours post meal he was 183. 3 hours post meal 144. 6 hours post meal 141. And 8 hours post meal 116…he was 91 this morning after no food or drink since 4:30 PM the day before.
My questions are could this be diabetes? Could it be thyroid related? Why normal numbers then suddenly not again? Thanks for any advice. He has a blood draw again in 1 month to test thyroid levels and blood sugar.
