my son is 7 years old and for the past couple of months his appetite has greatly increased he also awakes quite often at night being thirsty and has pins and needles in feet and sometimes hands he also has frequen bouts of hyperactivity and then somedays no energy at all he suffers alot of headaches too.his grandfather has type 2 diabetes so there is a family history although when i took him doctors with my concerns he didnt really seem that bothered and said he is too young for type 2 ,although i have read online that children can develope this...he not obese but could say he is a little on the chubby side ...does anyone have any advice for me please
