I want it to be mandatory for children to be tested for high glucose levels (type 1 diabetes) alongside uti checks this will delay a diagnosis for possible diabetics and significantly reduce children being admitted with Dka. My son was diagnosed on 17th June 2019 and was in icu and children’s ward for a week due to misdiagnosis! The uk has the 5th highest rate of diabetes in children 16% of all children are not diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes until they are in DKA This figure increases to 24% in the the under 5s 
Children can develop DKA within 24-48 hours of first presentation with the symptoms, my son was hours from death, if I hadn’t of been woken by him in the early hours i don’t think he would be here today.
