    True, I guess I am just confused as to what is going on here. In one post the OP says her child got a dx of Type 1, yet they just sent them home. The OP got a reading of 300 and an A1c of 6.9. I was just wondering how they were dealing with that. To me that sure seems like diabetes and they should be testing him and treating with insulin.

    I think you need proper medical advice.

    It is likely that he is developing Type 1 D, but only a doctor can make that determination.

    Few of us had the benefit of this level of testing prior to our children's diagnosis - my guess is we may have seen something like this if we had had the benefit of such testing.

    Those results are from 2 years ago?? What happened with the metformin he was taking?

    I think this falls under the "Posts about "I think my child has diabetes" thread which is permanently posted as a sticky by Jeff. Please read that and seek the proper medical advice you need.

    The rest of us should probably refrain from posting further.

    Maybe but this is a pretty unusual case and I don't think there should be anything wrong with us, as mature adults, discussing the different aspects of the situation.
