In brief: Testing

Get her tested for What?I'm assuming you are worried about diabetes.
Most children at this age with new onset DM start wetting the bed at night when previously dry.They tend to urinate a lot and do tend to loss a lot of weight.If you have a strong family history of diabetes she is at risk, but these symptoms alone are not red flags. If you have a family member with DM you could test her blood sugar
