Hi, Please could i have some advice, my son is 7 and a half, Weighs 19kg. For the last year or so hes been having episodes, He will be perfectly fine, then all of a sudden he cant move, hes crying in pain that his head hurts so bad, after about half an hour the stomach pain will join him, He will start throwing up. This last anything from 3 hours to 6hours then hes fine. And can happen once a month or 7 times a month.
I took him to A&e Oct 12, He had BS of 11.6 ketones 3+ i took him to a n e a further few times same again high bs n ketones, but levels would go down when his episode had finished. they did a blood test and referd him to a ped, Who did a OGTT, Negative. His 1st A1C was 4 something(about a year ago), He lost weight in January 2013. and they did another A1C Which was 5.9 but again his random readings were ok,
My ped is rubbish and has discharged us (may i add he diagnosed my son with so many things and had to take them back as he didnt actually know what was going on)
Anyway my GUT is telling me somethings wrong, so i brought another BS monitor, These are the sort of readings i got..
Random test after i brought machine 11:30am, 11.3mmol
Before meal at 3pm 6.7mmol
and 6pm 8.2mmol
9:30pm (son had been asleep for 3 hours) 8.8mmol
2 hours after meal 12mmol
1 hour later 8.3mmol
next day.. 6.5 before meal
2 hours later.. 15.1mmol
few hours more 8.7mmol
11:30pm (asleep for 3 and half hours) 9.6mmol
A few random reading throughout the day.. the numbers i got are..
6.9... 7.0... 9.6.. 7.6... 8.5...9.0..8.7..6.9...10.7..6.9...7.6...15.1..6.5..8.9..7.9...12.6
Last fasting was 5.6 which i assume is ok? Are the rest ok? I went to my doctors to ask, but she wasnt helpful at all. and asked me if i wanted some help to get over the feeling somethings wrong
I really dont know what to do anymore. any advice please?
