Sorry ladies I meant to say that she did do the prick test while he was there, his reading was 7.
He had eaten dinner already like literally right before hand.
Edit: I am not sure why DH said to do the test next week, I don't know if that was the gps advice or if he just assumed we couldn't get it done sooner...

Diabetes in a child

So after a long night we are at ED waiting. He's fasted since yesterday dinner time and has just had a prick test which was around 4.5 I think.
Does that mean we are probably in the clear?

I'm not 100% about kids but when i had gestational diabetes my fasting levels had to be below 5. So i would think 4.5 is a good reading, but best to wait and see what the dr says.

Did they do an actual blood test at the ED? If so they would have waited for the results. If it is was positive they would have told you and admitted him. That's what happened with us.

Thought I'd let you know my experience with 2 of my cousins that have type 1 diabetes. They're sisters.
They're symptoms were rapid weight loss, always being thirsty and wanting water, lethargic and weeing all the time.
They're 18 and 14 now and got it when they were 7 and 10. Both had different symptoms each time and it was lucky my aunty took them to the Ed as both times if they had of waited any longer they would not be here today. So very lucky you didnt look past it and took action as quickly as you could to find answers.

Holy moly talk about some alarmist internet diagnosis posting here. No one else was in that appointment room and don't have any idea what went on in there. As it turns out it was because she did do a prick test and it was normal...dip stick tests can give false positives and I'm assuming the follow up blood was to check again.
Op it sounds like everything is ok. I hope these posts didn't stress you out more than you needed to be.

The OP didn't mention that the dr had done a blood test. Im sure a lot of mums on here who's children have diabetes are in the better be safe than sorry category.

But that's what I'm saying - we weren't there and don't know what happened or why a follow up was ordered for the following week. You can't ever assume that every single fact been put on a public forum hence my measured response at the start.
Anyway this is completely OT.
As you were.

We are still in ed waiting for bloods to be taken. I am losing patience fast as we are all hungry and now that urine and prick test has come back clear the doctor says 'I don't think it's diabetes but has his speech always been like this? And do you have a paediatrician for him?'
So I said yes for speech and we are booked in to start speech therapy next year and no we don't have a paed but we are seeing a child psych' so he says 'I think you need a paed for him'
So now I'm stressed that he's thinking along the lines of ASD again. For **** sakes!!!
