A couple weeks ago my son woke up extremely lethargic and wouldn't move for anything. I checked his blood glucose lvl and it was 47. So I fed him and it shot up to 288 so we rushed to the ER. While they they pricked him again and he was at 183, 3 hours after eating. They also found acetone in his urine. That is all they did though and sent us home. We followed up w/ the pedi and they referred us to an endocrinologist. We saw them and talked w/ them and they checked his A1c and it was normal. All other bloodwork as well was fine. So we were told to just keep an eye on him and only check him when we think something is up and if he is acting funny again.
Yesterday my son woke up and was sitting next to me in bed and was supposed to be eating. Well he passed out ane when he came to (only 30 seconds or so later) he was ery lethargic again and acting like he had previously. I figured he was low again so I checked to make sure. He was 195!! He hadn't eaten in 12 hours! So I called the on-call endocrinologist (per their instructions) and told them what was going on. They said they think he must be in the early stages and is probably dehydrated which is why he passed out. We get there and they do blood work and urine work and find NOTHING!!! Nothing at all! NO explanation! No idea what is going on!
He has also been getting some high readings off and on. I have checked him when I noticed he was peeing abnormally way too much and his readings were 156 and 167 and they had been at least 5 hours since his last meal.
I dunno what is going. But if anyone has ANY ideas at all! Please please please, tell me so I can bring it up to his doctors!!!! We're beyond at a loss!!!
