Our expert says:
You don't mention if your son is diabetic or not or why you are testing his blood sugar levels? In general the normal blood sugar level for children under the age of 6 years before meals is 5.5 - 10, and at bedtime or overnight, it is 6.1 - 11.1. The 3 readings of 9, 8.4 and 6.4, all still seem to be within the normal range for small children. If you son does suffer from diabetes and I would presume he would have type 1 diabetes (insulin dependent) at his age, then it is always a good idea to have an individual diet prescription worked out for him by a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area).
