My 6 year old is 17.9kg. She has experienced a lot of random episodes over the past year with out of the blue stomach pain and vomiting. Sometimes she comes right instantly. Other times she takes a day or so to settle the fatigue/exhaustion/washed out looking. She always eats and drinks well and we don’t have excessive drinking or urinating but maybe a wee bit more than normal the last few days.
She started randomly vomiting Tuesday and has vomited 4 times Tuesday and Wednesday. It has a pattern of her eating normally, then a couple of hours later she starts having abdominal pain, and proceeds to vomit. She then comes right again, only to do the same thing after the next meal.
I decided to check her urine Tuesday night and found traces of glucose in her urine and traces of ketones.
Fast forward to Wednesday and she developed a terrible headache. It had her in excruciating pain and all she wanted to do was sleep unless she was full of ibuprofen.
Blood sugar was 4.8 wednesday morning and I thought she was gunna be fine but didn’t get better.
She’s had high ketones in her urine all day, then Wednesday night they were the highest on the strip so +4. I checked her blood sugar at an hour after eating and it was 11.5.
She continued to have a terrible headache and Thursday’s Fasting blood glucose was 5.8.
The rest of the day her BGs were around the 5.1 - 5.8 mark so nothing unusual.
Took her to the docs and had bloodwork done. She continued to have these horrible headaches and just wanted to sleep.
She stopped eating at 4.30pm Thursday night and at 7am Friday morning she had a blood glucose of 5.4 with +++ ketones. Hba1c came back at 5.1. And the highest blood glucose we have had this weekend was this afternoon at 8.2 an hour after a couple of small biscuits.
Has anyone else been here? Did it turn out to be diabeties or something else??
