- MY DIAGNOSIS: I was diagnosed in November 2011 with type 1 diabetes. It's autoimmune, so no, I didn't eat too much sugar. I was a little extra thirsty, and tired, and I had lost weight, so my Dr. asked my my mom to go get my labs drawn. It was the day before Thanksgiving, and so we never heard anything. Then on Monday, we went to the Dr. and he told me my sugar was 597. I went to Children's Hospital Los Angeles, and I got insulin and fluids. They set me up with an awesome endo clinic and I've been adjusting/ living ever since. Here is a more detailed post.
- I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY PUPPY. She was born the day I (think) went into DKA and she is a miracle. Emma is a yellow lab.
