“Aisha was born healthy and was baby friendly fed. She was not only cute but grew normally until she started taking other foods. She was always feeling hot, weak and thirsty.
She was admitted for fever and diarrhoea on wednesday afternoon and after all attempts to heal her, we lost her to juvenile diabetes midnight Friday.
All praise is due to Allah. But who could have thought an 11 month old baby will die of diabetes.
All the signs were there!!!
She is only active in cool places like when the AC is on. She was never too active and always prefers lying down. She could drink a whole satchet of pure water at one go.
Moral of this note:
Mothers should not take the above symptoms for granted. They should watch out for differences between their child’s development before and after the introduction of foods. Aisha is an example that shows EVEN babies can have hyperglycemia.
Make Allah grant her aljannatul firdaus and give her family the fortitude to bear the loss, ameen”
