My little 6-year old granddaughter has been feeling ill for a couple of weeks, so far without a determinate diagnosis, but some of the symptoms are T1-ish. Peeing lots (her teacher at pre-school has commented on it), saying she feels terrible all the time, uncharacteristically and persistently moody/irritable. The one specific thing that's been most consistent is a persistent back pain. It's that one I want to ask about as it doesn't seem particularly T1 related to me, but kids are different. Can anyone comment on that?
They brought her to the Dr for tests last week thinking possible UTI but that was negative. My daughter's not sure if they tested BG or ketones. Going back to the dr today as it continues to persist. I've told my daughter she should definitely ask for BG and ketones to be tested--that's easy and could easily eliminate the T1 worry from the list if negative.
