Apologies, have also posted this on the Children's Health board but not sure how busy it is, and no-one has replied yet <sob>
Dd (3.5) was ill last week and has been very much up and down ever since. Seems to have plenty of energy and runs round like crazy then comes crashing down and is very weepy. Also has been falling asleep whenever she gets in the car which is very unlike her.
Shes been drinking quite a bit, which I put down to the running around but last night she woke up twice in the night for a wee, and on both occasions her pull up was absolutely soaking and leaking. Shes often dry at night, but not reliably (hence the pull up) and I dont think Ive ever seen her wee so much overnight. I did notice a faint smell of pear drops at the time.
Anyhow, thinking about it this morning it did trigger a faint thought that this was linked to diabetes. I was going to leave it a few days and see how she got on, but after looking through the archives here there seems to be a consensus that if theres a suspicion of diabetes it shouldnt wait. Any thoughts? I dont want the doctors to think Im being ridiculous, but equally dont want to leave it if there is a problem.
