I have been diabetic for 23 years. My mom was diagnosed about 10 years after I was. Her grandmother also had it. I am worried for my daughter who is 9. Every once in a while I will check her blood sugar (she always wants it checked—lol) and it's always normal, however about a year ago she was experiencing diabetic symtoms so I took her to her doc and her blood sugar level was 128. That concerned me a little but her doc said nothing to worry about. What IS too high for a kid? Should I have her checked regularly? I wonder what her chances are of getting diabetes.
