This should be mandatory questions and considerations for ALL GP’s…UK and US alike. Such a sad story and really hits home the importance of what we’re doing for our children…even if they don’t understand it right now. :frowning:

That should not be happening as four simple questions can raise the alarm for GPs examining a sick child. They call it the Four Ts test:

  • Toilet - going to the toilet a lot, bed wetting by a previously dry child or heavier nappies in babies
  • Thirsty - being really thirsty and not being able to quench the thirst
  • Tired - feeling more tired than usual
