I am a Mom of 4 boys and suspect that 2 of them may be diabetic. They both have a lot of symptoms. I asked to have my oldest tested and my Dr. is being difficult. I am meeting with her for a consultation to discuss what is going on again and if she does not test them I will be going somewhere else. She does not think they have it. My 10 year old has had symptoms for a while, but he had other things going on with his kidneys that never gave us a clear diagnosis. I mentioned diabetes and they basically brushed me off. I have noticed more symptoms over a period of time like bed wetting, thirsty, extreme moods and he gets very dizzy and sick if does not eat. He also has a severe milk allergy and wears glasses since age four. My 5 year old has to have a drink every minute of the day and is in the bathroom constantly. He also gets up a few times during the night to go to the bathroom. He also is always tired and complains of tired legs all of the time. He also started wearing glasses when he was four. Both of their vision is poor and no one in our families wore glasses this young. I am wondering how long it took you to have your children diagnosed ? Were there symptoms that you may overlooked that you realize now was pointing to diabetes? Also if I try to test them at home what do you recommend? Thanks for helping out.
