- After she had various symptoms, I was told to monitor my daughter's blood sugar levels, which have varied, with increases after eating. The hospital suggested ketotic hypoglycaemia, but is it possible she has early type 1 diabetes? We are waiting for antibody test results. (28 Oct 2018)
- My daughter had an elevated blood sugar that was determined to be caused by a bladder infection. But, we were given a meter to check her any way. At home, she has had both highs and lows, but is asymptomatic for diabetes. What is your opinion? (11 Oct 2018)
- Diagnosed at age three, my older teen has necrobiosis lipoidica diabeticorum. Is it related to blood sugars? Are there any new therapies to improve or eradicate it? (2 Oct 2018)
