  • My cousin's son was diagnosed when he was 2. He kept saying he was thirsty and drinking a TON. I think that was the only symptom, but luckily my cousin is a bit paranoid and took him to the doctor because she suspected diabetes. The little guy is 6 now and doing great controlling it.

  • I noted no one answered your question yet, so I bumped it. You can always ask it again at another time. I hope you get your question answered.

  • I know there is a lady on here with a 1-2 year old with it. Try searching for children with diabetes.
