My daughter is 5 years old, has really bad asthma, was a premie, born @ 34 wks. She's constantly thristy, and always hungery, going to the bathroom frequently. She's started to wet the bed. We thought we were giving her too much before bed time, and even cutting her off at a certain time. Didn't work, still bed wetting.
She'e even began to sleeping later, and just plain lay around the house, not her normal active self. Even very irritable through out the day.
Yes, diabetes do run in our family. On my side (mother), her great grandmother(grandfathers mother) died from comlication of diabetes, I beleive she had type 1. Her grand mother has diabetes, not sure what type. Grandmother's mother also has diabetes. Once again don't know the type.
Her father's side great grandmother (grandmother'a mother) had diabetes. Type 1.
How would I go about get her doctor to run a GTT?

Yes, please take her to get tested. Are you close to a Children's Hospital? They would likely just draw blood work for a diagnosis. Call your Dr in the AM. GL~

Yes, I would have a complete workup done. These symptoms aren't normal and the sooner she's diagnosed the better. Good luck!
