    Hi! I have a few questions. I was at my daughter's pediatrician this past Monday, November 6th, and I brought up how my 6 year old wets the bed very heavily. Doesn't matter if she stops drinking at 5/6:00 pm or drinks something right before bed. They decided to check her urine for an infection. As I was checking out for the appointment, the NP came to me with blood work and explained to me that she had sugar in her urine and I needed to take her for a blood test. There were 4 tests, all fasting. I know one of them was hba1c and one was cholesterol, I can't remember what the other two were. Anyways, we got the test done and Wednesday the nurse called and told meshe needs to be retested in a year but her a1c was normal, but also she has elevated cholesterol so we need to go on a low fat/low carb diet. My concern is that I've noticed that after she eats and she doesn't feel well. She'll complain of her head bothering her as well as her legs and sometimes her arms or all over hurts. She becomes very weak, and looks exhausted. When doing any walking, biking, etc. She complains about being tired very easily. Also, her urine has a very strong, sweet smell. She's always had problems with being able to hold it. As far as drinking goes, she's always been a heavy drinker. Is it possible that she could still have t1 and just be in the very beginning stages of It? Type 1 and type 2 both run in her father's side of the family. I just don't want to put this off as nothing and something happen. I'm going to ask for a copy of her bloodwork on Monday and I'm also going to take her to my father in laws to have her finger pricked. She has been labeled ADHD and ASD, but I'm wondering if it's not those at all and it's something else going on. Sorry this is so long, but I just have so many questions and I don't want to call and sound like the crazy mom who thinks everything is wrong with her child.
