Hi,thanks for query.He is having type 1 diabetes.In intial days the dose of insulin needs titration as per the patient.So it may take a while to get normal.This can happen as both the patients and parents are not used to this and they are just recovering from shock of diabetes.Please keep consulting a pediatrician or diabetologist in your city and he will be fine.As the child is very young parents needs to understand things fully before taking discharge from the hospital.
wishing him good health.
