Hi guys, My son (8 yrs) had his yearly check-up today. They found sugar in his urine so they pricked him. The result was 144. We have been told it was high. So, we had a long talk with his doc. He has absolutely no apparent symptoms. The doc said it might be high because he had a really huge lunch just half an hour ago and he was on oral steroids (5-day asthma regimen). She wanted us to stop the oral steroid and come back in the morning hungry for another prick to see if his sugar level is still high. If it is high, she will send us to Children's Hospital for treatment. Since I came back from the doc, I have reading about Type 1. It seems really daunting. Since he has asthma that is definetely not under control, I am really praying for a miracle for him not to have D. He is currently taking his emergency asthma inhaler 4 times a day and using 2-3 times a week means your asthma is not controlled. On top of his severe asthma, I don't how he will handle D. He already resent his asthma. Do you guys know anybody who got diagnosed without any symptoms? Will he still test high tomorrow? Should I just prepare myself mentally for D? I am so grateful for this forum and best wishes to everybody.
