Hope is everything one has finally, they live for it hoping for better days. If hope is lost a human life has no meaning and the person attempts suicide. check for his blood sugar levels and then the doctor shall confirm on it. Do not be with a positive thinking that he is diabetic and misjudge his health.

My 3 year old son has a blood glucose of 155. We were at a birthday party where he had soda, cake, ice cream, etc... It seems he has been urinating more often and a lot today. We tested him with a new lancet on my husbands glucometer. Do I need to be concerned with a family history of diabetes?
