So diabetes runs in my boyfriends side of the family. We always keep an eye on our kids and i'm just wondering if i should worry....We tested our 5 year old before dinner when i was testing and he hadn't eaten since before 1. His blood was 124. is that high for a child that hasn't eaten? We always have problems getting him to eat..as a typical 5 year old and the "i don't like it" phase. He is so small and doesn't gain any weight. does anyone have any ideas?
