My husband is T1. My two year old daughter is in the TrialNet program and did test negative for autoantibodies last year. However, she’s had a very rough past year including three hospitalizations for asthma and other illnesses that didn’t require hospitalizations.
In any case, she has always struggled with gaining weight. More so recently. So, a few weeks ago, I tested her blood sugar on a whim and it was 240 mg/dL. I immediately took her to her GP. When they were finally able to see her, she was down to 120 and sent us home.
Fast forward to her latest TrialNet blood draw a week ago. I talked to the research nurse and she said to test her fasting three times (they were all normal: 70, 74, 90) and two hours post-prandial (189, 170, 138). The nurse said that the numbers seemed normal and that although she’d ask the doctor about them, we’d really just have to wait for the autoantibody tests to come back.
I tested her post meal again tonight and she was 173. I checked the meter against myself and it was 93 (I’m not diabetic).
Something doesn’t feel right but it seems like we can’t do anything about it except wait. Has anyone been through this?
