Q.

Sugar levels

What are the correct sugar levels for a six year old? I have been told my daughter is a 'tending diabetic' and I want to know what to look out for.

I am not sure who gave you this diagnosis, but the general signs of diabetes are: drinking lots of water, urinating excessively and eating a lot without weight gain. If you have any concerns you may discuss it with your doctor who will probably do a test for sugar in the urine.

The sugar levels for a normal person is between 4 and 8mmol depending on when last you ate at time of testing.
