I have a friend whose son is showing symptoms of d. Bed wetting, excessive thirst, extreme hunger, etc. She took him to his pediatrician this morning to do a fasting bs and urine test. No ketones and bs was 85. All she was told was to keep a log of eating habits, drinking habits, and bed wetting. ??? She wasn't advised to buy a meter and check his bs at all. Nothing mentioned about ketone strips. What the heck?? I don't understand this reasoning. She has called me for advice and I'm afraid I don't have a lot for her. I assumed when he went to the doctor that he would surely be dx'ed. Our closest endo is an hour away and the only way my daughter was able to see him was to go through the ER. Could this be pre-diabetes? Is there another test that can be done. What advice would you give to this mother worried to death about doing nothing? I hate this wait and and see attitude from the doctor's office.
