I am worried about my 12 year old son. He gets awful headaches if he doesn't eat every two or three hours. He had a 12 hour fasting blood sugar done that was 90. He also has chronic nose bleeds, slow wound healing, and seasonal dry skin on the backs of his hands (looks red and so chapped). He also has dry cracked lips. He is frequently tired with dark circles under his eyes. fatigue and moodiness can coincide with needing to eat. He's a skinny kid, 5' 1'' weighing about 80-85 lbs. What's up? I suggested blood sugar issues to his doc who was dismissive. Any suggestions?
