Tell me about it please.
Last night my son kept wanting to go to the toilet, he went 3 times before bed in the space of like 10 mins. When I think back, he's done this on and off the past few weeks. Then today has been similar, going to wee a lot.
Anyway I thought perhaps he had a UTI so off to the doctor we go. I already had a tub so got him to pee in it before we got there and kept it in the fridge. DH took him to the GP and they did another urine test as she said there was sugar in his wee.
So now she said she wants to test for diabetes.
This year can **** off.

Diabetes in a child
@SAgirl I'm sorry you're having such a tough year. My brother was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 3 years of age. Frequent urination combined with excessive thirst is one of the common early symptoms. Diabetes Australia and JDRF both have fantastic information that's well worth a look and more up to date than anything I could offer. When is the test?

Try not to jump to any conclusions until you get the blood test results. A few months ago I had a kidney stone and had sugar in my urine when tested at the hospital.
I do not have diabetes. I don't know why they found sugar in my urine and as my bloods were normal nothing more was ever said about it, I don't believe the kidney stone had anything to do with it.
It's hard but try and relax until you get further info.

They said to have the blood test next week but the last time we went for bloods for something else, the nurses had NO idea what they were doing and he screamed and got extremely distressed. I am dreading it.
I want to take him to the hospital to get it done so they can put that cream on him to numb it. I don't know what else to do 😢

You would be able to get the cream from your GP or ring the blood test place and ask if they can provide it for you before the test. You should be able to get it.

You can get Emla cream (the numbing cream) from the chemist. Our chemist gives us a tube of Emla and a dressing.
