From Wane, North Carolina, USA:

My 19 month old niece's feet sweat profusely, summer as well as winter. Recently, a nurse told my sister-in-law it was a symptom/sign of pediatric diabetes. Could you please give me some more insight regarding this matter?


Sweating is not a common symptom of diabetes in children.
