Brief Answer:
Need further evaluation.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your question.
Noted your concern.

Yes refractory error may be due hyperglycemia but usually in that case blood sugar levels are quite high above 250.

Also Type 2 diabetes (which has familial predisposition) in this age group is relatively rare.

I may suggest to consult her Pediatrician or diabetologist.
She needs detailed physical examination including obesity screening, signs of insulin resistance.
Depending upon it following evaluation may be suggested -
- Fasting and Postprandial blood sugar levels or OGTT (Oreal Glucose Tolerance Test).
- HbA1c.

Hope this helps you,

Dr Abhay Mali.
