HELP!! 3yr old bad reaction to consuming sugar?!?!
An_249223 posted:
I have a 3 yr old and in our house we don't eat a lot of foods with added sugar in them, anytime I can I get suger free or lower sugar substitutes for food. Today we were at a fundraiser and she had a cinnamon roll that had about a tablespoon of cream cheese frosting on it and about 20 minutes later she seemed to be drunk she couldn't get her hands in her gloves with help, and she said that the lights were dancing! What should I do?! Is this something that I should bring up to her doctor?

I would most definately bring it up to her doctor. I think you should make an appointment rather than just wait till her next scheduled checkup. In the meantime, if it happens again before you can get her in to see her doctor, take her to the ER.

I am not intending to scare you or tell you she is diabetic or anything like that. Those symptoms just seem pretty serious whatever the cause, and the sooner you find out what it is, the better.
