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.

    i am diabetic myself
    i was diagnosed with it when i was only 13 months on on thanks giving day

    i never remembered much of when i was young
    i didnt even remember being diagnosed

    but i am kinda glad because it feels as if i never even went through the pain of being sick from keytones

    and for me anyway i never really had that strict of a diet i just need to give myself a bunch of insulin

    i can have like 2 donuts and maybe a sandwich and its fine

    my family is a bit unorganized and its a hard process to become more organized

    being diabetic for me is now just a habit
    i dont notice it at all really..
    and with all the technology they are coming out with to make things easier it is much more helpful and less of a struggle

    and really i just live my life exactly how any other kid would
    i just give myself a injection (of insulin) keep an eye on my blood glucose and i live my life completely fine

    i feel worse about being extremely short instead of diabetes (i would still take shortness other diabetes but im short and diabetic)

    This is really similar to how I got diagnosed. I was real skinny, going in and out of consciousness, near death.
    Keep a look out for some other symptoms that aren't mentioned: extreme hunger that's never satiated, never gaining weight no matter how much you eat, and dizziness.

    I was gonna do a joke but actually, if I had diabetes i would be boned, you know, I drink juice every 10 mins
    I went to the doctor and im very healthy, im not fat and i dont have any problems, I have all the vitamins I need, I eat a lot and I dont get fat, And sometimes I think my life sucks but I dont look how other people with hard problems suffer.
    This is why you should be thankful for everything you have.

    When I was 8 or 9, I had a deadly disease, (I can’t remember the name of it) and it started as a scratch, which got infected. I was in the ER for about 7 hours, then I went back the next day for 5 hours. I remember thinking that I could’ve died. It was terrifying. I’m perfectly fine now, with just a single, small scar on the left side of my knee. It took about 2-3 weeks for my leg to get all its strength back, and since I’m a gymnast, I lost most of my skills. But I’m so proud for being so brave during that awful time. 💗

    I remember when my sister was diagnosed with T1D it was probably one of the scariest things, she had gone on vacation with my grandparents alone and when she got back she had lost about 10 lbs or at least it looked like that. When we were driving home from my grandparents my sister used the restroom about 30 times and mad the 8hour car ride a 10 hour car ride. Luckily for her my mom got her a doctor appointment for the next day. When we got to the doctor they immediately tested her urine and then the doctor care back and told us about what she had and said that she called the hospital and to go home back bags for a three night stay and to get to the hospital as soon as we could. It was pretty scary and I was only 8 at the time and didn’t understand.
