What is the normal blood sugar level for a 4year old child? I think my grandson may have an issue with his. It may be on the high side.
Normal : Normal blood sugar levels are higher in young children than they are in adults. 100 mg/dl to 200mg/dl is considered normal with a fasting glucose at the lower end.

Depending on his symptoms, the doctor may want to check his blood and urine in a lab, as well. Good luck! ...Read more

My child (15) blood sugar level is 21.7 at the moment. No doctors available. No insulin available. What to do?
This is an emergency: This is a very high blood sugar level. If it has been building for a while, you will need to have his insulin adjusted. I am assuming your child has a diagnosis fo diabetes. Until you can access care, you should have him take fluids (non sugar containing electrolyte fluids at first ) as much as possible. I would estimate he would need at least 2-3 liters to help bring down his sugar. Try to get him to care as soon as possible. As you are providing hydration, you will see the blood sugar come down and then you should replace the sugar free fluids with those containing glucose and electrolytes as oral hydration. ...Read more
