A Doctor's Error Almost Killed Me

  • Опубліковано 9 жов 2018
  • Type 1 diabetes affects millions of people all over the world; most being children. Type 1 diabetes is when our blood sugar levels are too high from low levels of insulin. In short, insulin helps the cells in your body absorb the glucose (sugar). Without it, your blood will be overrun with high blood sugar levels leading to heart, eyes, kidneys, nerve, and gum damage because your blood is too acidic. This is known as Diabetic Ketoacidosis or DKA and if left untreated, it could be life-threatening. Your body begins destroying itself from the inside out. This is what happened to this person due to a misdiagnosis at the hospital.
    At 10 years old, you don't really think much about your body. In fact, we all think our bodies are invincible at that age jumping off the playground, scraping our knees and brushing it off as if it was a small paper cut. But for her, she knew instantly that she was not well. Dehydration, thirst, frequent urination (peeing), and headaches are just some of the symptoms she felt all at once. When visiting the hospital, the doctors took her symptoms as a virus and told her to rest at home. But the reality was, her blood was growing more acidic by the minute because her body was no longer producing insulin. As she got worse her quick thinking mother grabbed a glucose meter and knew instantly her daughter was in danger of dying within hours.
    Rushing to the hospital doctors hooked her up on machines and rushing to control her acidic blood levels. Luckily, they were able to control it and she survived, but not with a catch. For the rest of her life, life all type 1 diabetics, she would have to monitor and inject herself every few hours a day. On top of this weight fluctuations, headaches, and tiredness will be with her for the rest of life and at random times.
    For most Type 1 diabetics, your life revolves around the needle and glucose meter, but it doesn't have to. You don't have to hide behind the needle and screen anymore. You can proudly say you have this disease and that's fine because you will rise above it. Don't let a disease (or any) take advantage of who you are, what you're capable of, and what you want to accomplish in life. You may have to walk an extra 10 steps than the person next to you, but those extra steps will only make you stronger and make you appreciate every step more. Don't think of it as the end to your life but the beginning of a new challenge that you will overcome.

    Last year I was diagnosed with an eating disorder. I lost 40 lbs, I had a heart rate of 42, and I was jaundiced as my liver was failing. Everyday for a week I have to get blood tests early in the morning. My mother and father would literally pray in the middle of the night whenever they saw my heart rate reach 40 on the monitor (because anything lower than that would mean cardiac arrest). You and your mother are so strong and I hope you are significantly better. I understand what it’s like to go through a big change in your life ❤️

    I’m going to go see a specialist about it soon and I’m worried.
    This story is inspiring especially the end.

    My dad was diagnosed with diabetes at 4 (he's 50 now - I'm 11)and my best friend last year at Christmas she was 9. My dad and her are supportive of each other and help each other through. If my dad has a hipo she will come running to my house with her mum if I'm alone with just him. If she's having a hipo will I'm out with her and my dad, he will help her and speak t to her as if his own. I learn a lot from them and he would recommend the Libra and she would recommend the pumb and omnepod (sorry can't spell it) despite there diffrences, they help each other kindly. I'm glad we're besties!!! Just a rant sorry

    I had the same symptoms, aside from this weird knot that I felt in my throat every time I ate at first, and then at random times during the day. I remember texting my mom during lunch at school saying that I needed to go to the doctor bc I just couldn't eat. The knot was too much and I couldn't even eat a hot dog. After some convincing, she took me to the family doctor. She didn't even touch me.. no tests or anything, before sending us home saying I was having a panic attack. None of us believed her, so the next day, my parents took me to a Hispanic clinic. Before going, the knot in my throat had me guessing I had acid reflux and after explaining all my symptoms, the doctor did too. They did however, take blood to send it to the lab and run tests. I was sent home and for about a week, my condition only got worse and worse. It came to the point where I was throwing everything up, even water. One day, my mom straight up let me stay home from school (if you knew our family, you'd know this was a VERY rare moment). She went to walmart to buy some popsicles bc maybe I could keep that down. She left me in my bed with a bucket bc it simply hurt to walk, even to the bathroom. On her way there, she received a call from the doctor at the hispanic clinic telling her that she needed to get me to the emergency room immediately bc my blood sugar levels were through the roof. Where a normal bs would be between 70 and 150, mine was in the 400s. You can imagine how fast she forgot all about walmart and rushed home, dragged me down the stairs and into the car to take me to the hospital....granted, she took me to the wrong one, but still. She called my dad and told him what had happened.. and though it takes an hour or so to get to his work and back, he got to the hospital in what couldn't have been longer than 20 minutes. I was admitted into the ER for about three or four hours before I was transported to the correct hospital (they're literally right next to each other.. a children's hospital and the Methodist one) into their ICU unit.
    One of the moments my parents talk about most is this one moment that I don't remember. They said that there were about five nurses standing around in my room watching over me while I was awake but completely unresponsive.
    Turns out, what the family doctor had labeled a panic attack. was actually DKA and I was dying from my type 2 diabetes. Yeah.. my parents got her fired from the clinic she worked at.
