I have a question about children and their blood sugar levels. Is it the same guidelines as an adult? We haven't had peds yet and my 2 and 1/2 year old has been displaying some diabetic symptoms such as extreme thirst, urinating a lot, and moodiness. Anyways, a few months ago I tested his fasting sugar and it was 130. This morning I tested it again and it was 145 (fasting). Then I checked it again tonight 1 hour and 45 minutes post meal and it was 165. My family always turns to me for medical advice and this time I don't have an answer. So, since I'm on spring break and can't ask my advisors, I thought I would ask you guys. Thanks so much!
p.s-Isn't it funny how we always turn family medical problems into learning experiences?
I am beginning my nursing clinicals this semester! I am both excited and nervous at the same time. I couldn't sleep last night because I was so worried. I have two children and like everyone else with children, I don't know how I am going to do this! I think prayer will be used a lot during these semesters!!
