    Hi there
    I am not someone who usually posts in forums so please forgive me if I don’t know the etiquette.
    I am desperately worried about my seven year old daughter and wondered if anyone could help?
    She has always been healthy but in the last week I’ve noticed her breath smells fruity. She isn’t unwell in any other way, isn’t thirsty or urinating a lot and hasn’t lost weight. She has had bed wetting incidents on and off since she was about 3 but I’ve always put that down to her not peeing before bed or being extra tired etc.
    Does this sound like it could be diabetes? Thank you for any advice

    If you're worried, please see your doctor!

    Hi,

    Welcome to the forum.

    One of our forum rules is no one can diagnose. You do have a couple of markers that concern you regarding your child.
    The best course of action would be an appointment with your GP if only to belay any worry you may have for your kid..
    They won't mind you enquiring.

    Best wishes to you both.
