2 year old shakes when waking up? Normal? Signs of diabetes?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Michael Amster
Specializes in Pediatrics
Totally normal: Assuming the shaking is brief, it's totally normal. Usually myoclonic jerking in the muscles. If it's really more of a shaking and it's prolonged, more than just a few seconds, then discuss it with his pediatrician. Very unlikely to be diabetes though unless he's having drinking and urination issues, or failure to thrive.
