In brief: DKA

Because children with type 1 dm are so prone to diabetic ketoacidosis, symptoms such as excessive thirst and urination (including overnight/bed wetting), abdominal pain, vomiting, weight loss - merit immediate medical evaluation, particularly if vomiting.
A urine dip stick positive for glucose and ketones is enough to make the presumptive diagnosis of type 1 dm in a child.
