    Default Advice please, high glucose level in my daughters urine.

    Hi I would love some advice, my daughter has presented symptoms lately to suggest she has diabetes. On a visit to our GP she had a blood glucose reading of 12.8 so our GP diagnosed Type 1 Diabetes and sent us to the hospital to be admitted. On arrival at hospital her level had lowered to 6.8. The doctors did a urine sample which showed high glucose levels but all finger prick tests came back normal all day. They sent us home and suggested it could be Ketotic Hypoycemia. Has anyone been through anything similar. Our GP isnt convinced of their findings and has referred us to a Paed and ordered more tests. Im really concerned and hope we get a definate answer soon. Any advice would be great

    Hi sorry to hear your going through this with your daughter.. My 5 year old has type 1 diabetes so I know a little bit about what you are saying.
    It is my understanding that ketotic hypoglycemia is constant blood sugar levels being to low 'under 4.0' with ketosis which isn't your daughters case.
    Has your daughter been sick recently? I know that if children get sick they can occasional get high sugars and ketones(ketone from not eating)..
    Has the hospital asked you to check her BSL's? Perhaps keep a record of them for the paed.. I see you are in Brisbane if you don't mind the travel we have a fantastic pediatrician on the gold coast that specialises in diabetes, a lot of people I know travel from Brissie to see him and his diabetes educator..
    Hope you can find some answers..

    Thankyou for your reply, the hospital said it may be that as my daughter frequently wakes up quite lethargic and vomits but once she has eaten she bounces back. No they didnt ask us to monitor her levels I am hoping the paed will ask me to keep a record and ill buy a monitor. It scares me to think age wont be monitored and will continue to get ill. She has the sweet smell to her breath with each episode too. Im grateful that we have a great GP and hopefully our Paed will be the same if not I will definately use yours if possible.

    I can tell DD1 is going to be high whenever i smell her sweet breathe or urine can smell sweet also..
    Oh yep that fits it a bit, lethargy and vomiting after not eating for awhile usually over night are symptoms of it however sending her home without having a proper diagnosis or medical plan isn't good.. You are very lucky to have a great GP that is following up on it all. Hope you have some luck with the new paed and can get in fast..
