Dear worried,
The presence of glucose in urine usually means diabetes, but we wont know for sure till the lab results come back.
Has she been losing weight lately, drinking a lot of water, anorexic and fatigued?
Or is it just the bedwetting?

thank you for your reply! She has been drinking more water than usual and maybe even more milk. she does not eat very well but she is maintaining her weight. She is about 3 ft tall and 37 lbs. she does not seem to be fatigued. her drs office is closed friday and over the weekend due to moving buildings so it will be monday before we get the results we are waiting for.
