Some medications can make blood glucose high. Is he on any medications? No he isn't on any meds at all...
Why did you have it checked? Has he been having symptoms? I checked his sugar because for the past week he has been drinking a lot and I know from my husband that staying thirsty is a sign of diabetes. My son constantly asks me for something to drink. He has even stolen my drinks and took off with them!

On a child that young that has never had a problem before, I would get a second opinion-who took the test and why? What kind of test? urine, blood sample and how long after he ate something was it. What kind of food did he have before the test or was he fasting and for how long. Does he eat without telling you? Check his room for hidden sugar or candy. Some suggestions. Hugs don't fall apart-just be more observant and make sure to get a 2nd opinion before the doctors get him tied to a bunch of medications if he really doesn't need them.

What kind of food did he have before the test or was he fasting and for how long. Does he eat without telling you?I can't remember what he ate. It was about 2:30 pm yesterday. No he wasn't fasting. No he don't eat without me knowing.
We checked his sugar again this morning before he ate breakfast and it was 107.
