I found out about my son one morning when I found my son laying in the floor after a shower. He told me everything went black and he could not see so he laid in the floor because he was running into the walls. He had no other symptoms. I am considered pre-type 2 diabetic and had a glucometer on hand. I thought his blood sugar might be a little low and just needed to eat breakfast. I decided to check it and it was 163. I knew on an empty stomach it probably should not have been that high. I took him to ped and by that time it was 270. Ped tried to tell me it was due to stress but I insisted on blood work. Blood work came back and we were sent to Childrens Hospital asap where we met with an endo. She told us we caught it extremely early. In your opinion, how long could he have been sick without us knowing? I am just curious.
