Matty went for another appt. concerning his anemia and lack of weight gain. The good news is he gained a whole pound in just three weeks. So he is now at 18lbs 15 oz. so close to 19 lbs! Operation Hanzel and Gretel is working. The scary news is that Matt's last urine sample had very high sugar levels and the dr. is concerned it is diabetes after taking into account his drop in weight.
When I asked what would cause it when there is no history of diabetes in either DH and my family he suggested diet. Now that upset me because we never give Matt anything that has added sugar. All of his foods are all natural, no added sugar, organic, and hormone free. His crackers taste like cardboard because there is no added sugar or salt. The sweetest thing he gets all day is a banana.
DH suggested it has to do with sugar levels in my BM and I would die if my unhealthy diet impacted Matty so that he got diabetes.
Of course I googled infant diabetes and Matt doesn't seem to have any of the symptoms so I am very hopeful. This time around they drew blood to get an official test. I should find out tomorrow. I am just going to lock everything out until I get the call from the pedi tomorrow.
