From Grangeville, Idaho, USA:

My son has frequent high blood sugars in the morning with nausea and sometimes vomiting, and he is always bedwetting. We don't know what to do for him, and neither do the doctors (including specialists) we've seen. If he gets too low he has seizures. Do you have any advice?


Frequent highs in the morning are usually fairly easily fixed with adding a dose of an insulin like NPH at night. Bedwetting is a more difficult problem to fix and frequently requires patience rather than medication. The nausea and vomiting can be related to high or low blood sugars, and fixing the sugars should go a long way to relieving that problem.
