Hi, I had a missed call from Doctors surgery, they left message that I needed to contact them as my 4 year old had sugar in her urine ( had handed sample in yesterday) obviously the surgery is now shut till Monday.
Does this def mean diabetes do you think, any advice about what will happen at doctors, I need to ring first thing Monday.
Thanks, I'm stressed as have to wait the weekend now before I can find out more.
Sounds like it might be diabetes but if it was a lot of sugar and serious then I would have thought message would have said it was urgent to go to hospital. If your dd is generally looking and feeling well then she will be ok till Monday. If she begins to feel unwell then of course get her straight to out of hours or hospital.
Try not to worry too much ..... faaaaaar easier said than done ... hope you get the answers you need at GP Monday X
My dd once had glucose in her urine sample so the dr ordered a blood test which was negative for diabetes. Sometimes people do leak glucose back into their bladder so it's not definitely diabetes until a blood count confirms it.
What were the circus surrounding you taking in a sample? My dd said her bits were sore and the surgery asked me to bring a sample to the appt. Because she was otherwise well, not tired, unwell, thirsty etc the GP just scheduled a routine blood test which was negative. I think if dd had been clearly poorly they would have probably sent us off to hospital maybe?
A small update. I spoke to GP this morning who said that it was a v small trace of glucose in sample, have made appointment for fasting blood sugar check tomorrow morning, but Dr doesn't seem overly concerned as no other symptoms of diabetes. Just want to see what the story is now.
