I am from the Lyme forum but I have been noticing odd behavior from my son.

He is 10 years old. He has been craving bread a lot of bread. He is thirsty all the time and his weight is fluctuating. Last Jan. he weighed 86lbs then he dropped to 78lbs in 2 wks. Now he is up to 90lbs. He gains the weight when he is craving the bread. He never seems to get enough of the bread. He doesn't seem to over eat. I would guess about 2000 calories a day. But he is still gaining weight. He has to take a glass of water to bed with him every night and has started to carry a water bottle around with him. He also has a swollen tongue and tingly feet and hands. He says they feel like shocks sometimes.

I was thinking it might be lyme but with his weight problems and thirsty all the time I thought I might need to get him tested for diabetes. Also, back in Jan. he had high cholesterol.

If any one can be of any help I'd appreciate it!!!

Thanks,
Lysha

Hi Lysha,

It could be diabetes - please take your son to the doctor ASAP.  If it IS diabetes he needs to get it under control as quickly as possible, and if it's something else that will also need to get treated anyway.  Does he need to use the loo a lot?  This combined with a strong thirst does suggest diabetes.  Please let us know how you get on, and if he does have diabetes you'll both find a huge amount of support here!

Went to the doc today. They are checking his lipids, and fasting glucose in the morning. The doc thinks it is a strong posibility.

Thank you Claire!
