  • Diabetes is my first guess but it could be several others as well... Call the referring Doc and ask why..

  • To the poster who said to ask the doctor. I accompanied a friend of mine to her Doctors appointment. I saw a child at the doctors office who was supposed to be a patient there. So that's why my question. Thanks

  • My son is special needs, he was born with a very rare genetic disorder that can affect hormone levels, so he sees an Endocrinologist once a year to get his hormone levels checked and to make sure he's growing properly, he also gets bone scans ordered by his Endocrinologist.

  • Growth issues or hormonal issues. We are supposed to be seeing one soon for my 4 year old. He is smaller than his 2 year old brother.

  • Diabetes would be my 1st guess. A growth or thyroid issue would be my 2nd and 3rd.
