From Fayetteville, North Carolina, USA:

I have a 16 month old baby girl that is excessively thirsty. I tested her blood sugar level and it was 99. This is normal for an adult; are the levels the same for an infant?


A blood sugar of 99 is normal for both a baby and adult. It can be difficult to do an accurate blood sugar on a baby using a home meter if you are not experienced. If there is any question that your baby is thirstier than normal, you should call your pediatrician.
