    Hi Denise, 

     

    You need to take your son to the doctor as soon as you can. The only way to diagnose diabetes is with a fasting laboratory serum blood sugar test.   

     

    There are studies being done for a connection between autism and diabetes, as there are a number of families that deal with both.  If your son does test positive for type one diabetes, you should contact JDRF as they have lists of parents you could talk to who share the same situation.
