My son had his first febrile seizure last March. He was 13 mo. old and his fever only got as high as 102.8. well let me say that night was my worst night mare lived out. his seizure was a complex febrile seizure that lasted over 20 min. before the ambulance could give hime valume. the valume in turn caused his whole body to shut down. which in turn caused him to stop breathing. By the time we reached the Hospital they had to call a code and were baging him. how ever when they checked his blood sugar the highest they got was 238 and he had 4+ glucose in his urine. I want to know how common this is. my fear is that he might possibly be diabetic and they just have not found it yet. diabetes runs through my family, and I was gestational diabetic with both of my pregnancies. so long story short, how many kids really have spikes in their blood sugars from a seizure, and if they do how high did it actually get.?
