Child with elevated glucose

Patient

Q: Child with dx of "borderline diabetes"

Symptoms:  10 yr/old female. not overweight, very active. her father is juvenile diabetic (dx at age 11). I noticed she was very hungry ALL the time and craved sugars. She also c/o stomachaches more often. I decided to perform FBS on her via finger stick and she runs 114-127 every morning . Her RBS are 114-172. Her Pediatrician is referring her to an endocrinologist.
Should I be concerned?
Doctor

A:   Hi
borderline diabetes is treated with exercise and diet control only. but unfortunately, in juvenile diabetes, it is very difficult to prevent.
but regular sugar checkup is must
regards
