From Oceanside, California, USA:

My 6 year old daughter has sugar in her urine (250). What can this possibly mean? What steps should I take right now to help her in her consumption of sugar in her food? Should I be worried about this assuming she could possibly be a diabetic later?


If your child has sugar noted in her urine, you must seek medical care for this right away. The most common reason would be diabetes, which should not be left untreated due to the risk of developing diabetic ketoacidosis.
