Hi there,

Thanks for writing in.

I feel her blood sugars are within normal limits for her age. I would also advise your daughter to get a couple of tests done,like thyroid levels,urine routine, complete blood picture, including hemoglobin etc.

It could be anything from a viral infection, anaemia, depression etc.

Do you think anything is worrying her? Talk to your daughter. Is she upset / afraid about something/ someone. Any problems at school? Any anxiety issues?

Hope this helps.

Dr. Divya Kuttikrishnan

She definitely needs a visit to the paediatrician.
