Hello

My little one was normal till 9 months after birth (july 2018), He was very active and than we noticed one bad morning he was not able to do activity , he was looking drowsy and in sleep in the morning . First we thought he is not well after we fed him breakfast cereal he was ok . He seems to very hungry at the period of time . One day in sleep he started giving jerks and crying in sleep we took him to hospital they checked brain test to check for fits cause all came normal. Then doctor asked to run blood sugar test regularly in the morning or when ever we see him dull. We checked first time he was dull and sleeping with out any reason so it came as 35 where as normal range is 70. we again run to hospital where he was admitted for 3 days . Since than we are in bad time . My little one condition went from bad to worst . every week we need to admit him hospital for next two months . doctor told us it is symptoms of hyperglycemia regular feeding will help. he run lot of test metabolic genetic and so many blood test all came normal. charged us heaps of money our family is not insured bcoz i dont earn much to buy insurance . we are low middle class family. now from last 7 months we guided to different doctors and even admitted to hospitals.

    I don't think its healthy for a child to have to spend too much time at hospital. It an be very traumatic. That doesn't help matters.

    I would try some TCM- Traditional Chinese Medicine. Diabetes can respond well to emotional support, herbs and acupuncture as well as diet. Though with a little one, you're limited in more ways than for an adult.

    I have limited experience but I know that diabetes isn't always just a physical thing. Here's another perspective to consider:

    Case 1- I had a friend who passed away. His 7 year old daughter was so grief stricken, she developed diabetes.

    Case 2- My mother became diabetic suddenly due to a combination of unfortunate events. I was told she would always be severely diabetic and would likely never get off insulin. With strict diet, herbs and TCM, I was shocked at how quickly she was able to get off insulin and diabetes meds.

    3- There are studies that show diabetes can be prevented by human touch. This tells me that diabetes us very much an emotional disease.

    4- diabetes can be triggered by certain chemical exposures. A simple online search revealed this: "So far, four chemicals seem to cause trouble: bisphenol A (BPA) and dicyclohexyl phthalate, which are found in plastics, and two pesticides, endrin and tolylfluanid. When fed to mice, tolylfluanid caused weight gain..."

    Probably not what you're expecting, but sometimes an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The trouble is in knowing what the prevention is.

    Good luck in recovery for your little one.

    I hope in time, as the child grows that his organs will mature and begin to operate properly. Please make sure you use the proper terminology. Hyperglycemia is high blood glucose, Hypoglycemia is low blood sugar or glucose. In both situations, the body can respond to juicing of organic vegetables, dark green vegetables. You can add carrots to improve the taste and provide some slow release glucose.

    It is important that the child have enough fiber in his diet . Fiber can hold onto carbohydrates and provide slow release of glucose. Organic oatmeal is a good source. Whole rice, and other prepared grains are good. Quality breads are good. Small amounts of high quality protein are also needed, turkey, chicken and some red meat. Nutrition is the key to recovery. Good food is less expensive that doctor visits.

    There is some research on CBD oils and health benefits. It is made from hemp pants. My wife has had Hypoglycemia all her life and has learned to avoid sugary foods that spike glucose and then cause a sugar crash afterward. So candy is not the answer, and will cause problems. Hang in there! Knowledge is power. John
