Wet Behind The Ears
Wet Behind The Ears


Hi, we are new to the "possibility" of diabetes.

I have a 13 year old daughter (she is 5'4" & 130 lb's-not over weight and very athletic) who has been having elevated (101-121) fasting blood sugars for a year. All of her labs (A1C, insulin, etc) continue to come back as normal except for the fasting blood sugars.
We finally got in with the endocrinologist who again ordered all the labs, and once again they are the same. She ordered a new home meter and wants us to continue to monitor her levels for 3 more months and then come back. She said if the blood sugars stay under 120 and her her A1C is again normal when we go back then it's just "one of those things"-no big deal-we'll just continue to monitor her.
They did test her antibodies-which were negative.
Our doctor says at this point with the antibodies being neg, the A1C being normal (it was 5.1), and the fasting only being mildly elevated we're just continuing to wait and watch. She did say that her insulin level was 20 and she likes it to be 14 but it's still not considered high. She said that we may be one of the rare people to basically "watch" diabetes develop but we obviously won't know until it happens.
At this point we're just continuing to monitor.
She does NOT have excessive thirst or urination. She has occasional blurred vision (I have not been fortunate enough to be able to check her blood sugar when it happens). She has occasional extreme hunger but she also goes for periods of not eating very much. She is moody but she's 13!!
We do have a significant family history of type 2 diabetes and she has 1 paternal great uncle who had type 1 diabetes.

Does this sound familiar to anyone, or anyone with insight?

Thanks is advance,
Dee

Who had the nerve to tell you that those fasting blood sugars are Elevated? They are just FINE! Right where they should be. Why are you worried? If fasting tests were above 150 THEN you might like to start worrying. Why is she haveing A1c tests anyway? If she is a healty, athletic teen then I don't know why anyone would be testing her to begin with. What happened that someone decided to test her?


-----------
Best Regards, Tracy
