To: <>

I am curious, how are his teeth and gums? If they are red and he has gingivitis, that can cause "off" readings as well as make the insolinoma readings worse. He could have an infection in his mouth/gums. I am dealing with that right now with one of my DMK boys. He was on a antibiotic for 14 days and just had a recheck yesterday. His bg went up to 41 but she also told me to feed him 4 small meals daily and to make sure he gets food with his meds otherwise the meds will not do their job. Bug goes back for another recheck on his bg in two weeks and if it is better, he will go in for dental surgery and we will take it from there. His teeth are number one after getting his bg leveled. He is on 1/4 tab pred (5 mg tab) once in morning and .025 ml of diazoxide morning and night. So hopefully this is what is happening to your kid. Teeth/gums are always something to look at when they are not feeling good or blood panel shows elevated levels in kidney or liver functions, which
could indicate infection. Watch for reddening of the gums!
