My soon to be 3 yr. old daughter has episodes in which she does not wake up on her own in the mornings. When this happens, she is completely lethargic, low temperature, metabolic acidosis, etc. They have done all kinds of tests; blood, CAT, MRI, EEG and nothing shows. She also urinates constantly during the day. It's as if she is always thirsty, can't ever get enough to drink. The most serious time we were told her kidneys and other organs would have in fact shut down without medical attention. Once they put her on an IV for several hours, she seems to be fine. Along with this, her breath and urine have a smell of rubbing alcohol. Any ideas??? We are frustrated and scared. We don't want any long term damage.:confused:

  • Has she been checked for diabetes? That would make the most sense to me, and if these are her symptoms, she should have already been checked.

  • All the basic tests have been done time & time again, including blood sugar. That was a concern of ours. We have juvenile diabetes and adult diabetes in our families. ???
