Update on Ashley No diabetes:O)

So that's basically it, we had the lab results done and it turns out her average blood sugar over the last 3 months is 108, perfectly within normal ranges. We still monitor from time to time if she gets really sweaty & tired, just to keep tabs to make sure all is good though.
I can't help but think there may be something else underlying, but as for now, all is good and we're keeping tabs on every little fever or runny nose, sweaty day she has. She did have a 130 once after school and later that night was back at 96, so from what the endocrinologist said, when some children get sick they tend to spill glucose in their urine and Ashley fits that group. If it's related to achondroplasia I don't know, but at least it gives us a reason to not be alarmed next time it happens.
