From Exeter, California, USA:

My son's pediatrician just called and said that he had a glucose reading of 187 mg/dl [10.4 mmol/L]. It was not a fasting test. He had not eaten breakfast that morning and ate some candy in the lab waiting room. What kind of effect would this have on his test? He is 13.5 years, and he urinates frequently and complains of headaches.


The story you have given and the results of the test, suggests you need to meet with your son's paediatrician again and discuss the results further. He will obviously know your son in greater detail and will be able to know exactly what will be the best thing to do.
