A few weeks ago, my DS (age 8) had a urination accident at school. It has never happened before. I started thinking about it & realized that he had been drinking a lot more than normal (hence, using the bathroom all the time). He is also hungry all the time but is thin & has not gained weight lately. I checked his blood sugar & he was at 172 (2 hours post dinner). I've checked him on & off since & he is all over the place. He has had a fasting high of 179 & a fasting low of 92. His fasting average is around 107. I also had one experience where I tested him one afternoon & he was at 95, then 15 minutes later, he got really cranky & tested at 130. His doctor doesn't seem to be worried. When I took him in, she only glanced at the numbers I had brought & based everything on the fact that he tested at 92 in the office (never mind the fact that he tested at 120 when we first walked in the door).
Am I paranoid? Should I take him to another doctor? Are these numbers normal & I'm just reading the wrong literature? My son eats a balanced, healthy diet & is not overweight. Any help would be appreciated.

Next question overall
Do you have a sexually transmitted disease or ever had one?
