We had my son at the ER yesterday because he was vomiting and had diarrhea. He is 2 years old the doc said he was dehydrated but also had low blood sugar it was 30. We have to take my son back to the doc today to check his blood sugar. What is normal blood sugar for a 2 year old?

Normal for anyone - kids or not is approximately 90-145. Anything over 200 and you can look at diabetes as something to be investigated. 

Foundf this answer not sure how accurate it is

His low blood sugar can be attributed to his vomiting and diarrhea. If you are not eating your blood sugar will drop.

Normal blood sugars are 60-100 for adults.

Kids under 5 should be in the 100-200 range usually.

The doc just wants it checked again because if it gets to low that could be dangerous.

you aren't gonna prick him at home to determine that. just wait and go to the doctor...a real professional. ask him/her your questions.

the low blood sugar yesterday could have been a fluke from all of the vomiting. they're retesting today to see if it is still abnormal.


I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.
