From Detroit, Michigan, USA:

My 4-year old daughter suffers from yeast infections constantly. She has excessive thirst and hunger. Her pediatrician refuses to have her checked for diabetes so my sister, an RN, did a blood sugar check on her this morning with a portable meter. My daughter was 103. This seems a little high, she hadn't eaten yet.


103 is a bit higher than most children, but certainly not diabetes.

Probably the best answer comes from multiple blood sugars, or even urine sugars. Certainly positive urine sugars will get your pediatrician or any pediatrician's interest.
