To determine if your child has diabetes, the medical team will run tests on your child's blood and urine and talk with you about past medical history and recent symptoms.
Signs and symptoms that may cause these concerns are:
- increased thirst
- frequent urination (using the bathroom a lot)
- weight loss
- increased glucose (sugar) level (also called hyperglycemia)
- ketones in the urine or blood
- excessive loss of water from the body (dehydration)
