  • I'm sure it's from the juice. Does he seem normal to you? If you think he appears sick, then call the dr., but otherwise, I would blame it on the juice.

  • I would definitely be mentioning it to the doctor as it could be a sign he is starting the stages of type 1. With it only being slightly elevated I doubt it is, but I would definitely tell the doc and maybe check him throughout the day for a couple days for my peacec of mind.

  • Your blood sugar should never and I mean never go above 110 even after eating or drinking. That is not slightly elevated it is extremely elevated. I would absolutely talk to the Dr and make sure that your child is tested while he is fasting. Nothing to eat or drink for more than 8 hours unless it is water. I wish you luck and I hope that he doesn't have what you are suspecting that he have.

  • Do a fasting one and see what that is.
