Re: [IP] Gestational Diabetes

Brandon got diabetes three weeks after lithotripsy for a nasty kidney stone.
What a mess for a 9-year-old whose been told by his urologist to drink,
drink, drink!  Sure masked the symptoms for us.  He also had a bad case of
Henoch-Schonein purpura about two years prior that probably set things in
motion.  What can you do?
