My son is 9 years old. He got his regular pediatric exam about
3 weeks back and doctor, whom we have been seeing for a decade (incl for my daughter), rated his health as excellent. He has no weight loss or disproportionate gain, has no urine issues, no excessive fluid consumption, has no signs of fatigue (plays everyday for a couple of hours), is active/alert
/happy through the day, and excelling at his school plus other learning/fun activities. I understand that sweets consumption does not cause diabetes but he is totally not into sweets beyond an occasional ice cream or chocolate, something I will classify as low-moderate quantity for a child.
Only issue he is having is bad allergic reaction to some insect/mosquito bites that have caused hives over his body. He gets is a couple of times every year and is on standard antihistamine Montair LC, which contains Levocetirizine and Montelukast, for about
8-10 days now.
I got a full body blood panel done for him as an annual healthcare thing. It was not asked for by an health practitioner. His results were:
1. Fasting - 222
2. HB A1C - 6.9, estimated blood sugar level (eAG) is at 151
3. Tested using Accu Chek kit at home - 430. This was around 1.5 hours after having some cereal + milk and light playing session
4. Every single parameter of CBC, KFT, LFT, Lipid Profile is spot on other than mildly elevated LDL plus marginally low Sodium and Chloride
Right now, he is completely comfortable and has no clinical issues at all. Doctors have recommended some more tests tomorrow. TTG (my daughter has celiac), repeat of sugar and HBA1C, urine routine, TSH.
What's going on with him? What could be the reasons? I have been searching the top reliable platforms for information but it has not yielded any results.
Thanks so much in advance. I have benefitted immensely from this forum in the past and hope to get some knowledge in this precarious situation I am in.
