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'm a type 1 diabetic to, had it since I was 7. Ik how it feels to have a crazy high blood sugar or go throw DKA. I was lucky that I got caught with T1D early. But when I was 7 I was so stress and weirded out that I never took good care of myself. I got DKA when I was 8. I never really understood what this was but my mom knew exactly what it was at 1 in the morning I was rushed to the hospital and I now (I'm 14) I can't really remember... But I do remember exactly how you felt, I was scared for my life, I thought I was gonna go too my sister (who sadly passed away before I was born) . I was 1 hour away from death, I was horrified and I hardly remember the crying of my poor mom outside the door of the room I'm in. When I fell asleep I got a dream of my sister and my grandmother just sitting on a couch in my house and watching tv. I asked them, " Am I really dead?" And they never spoke a word, my sister got up and touched me on her head, then she said, " you got much more to live for lauren, go." Then I woke up the next day feeling tired but much better, my number was 108 which the funny thing was, it was the exact time of my sister's death, 1:08 am. If you read till here ty for reading and as a Type 1 Diabetic I'm proud to help whoever I can and say "I survived". Now I sometimes go to schools with many diabetic kids in them and talk to them about my story and how it is to have T1D. I don't want likes nor subs, but it's appreciated if you do. Thank you and I hope everyone has a great life.

    I was diagnosed in 2008, both of my parents took me to see two different doctors at different surgeries, all four doctors told us I was sick with a common cold, a virus, and other common infections. The type one got worse for about two months. I continued to feel and look morbidly Ill, it took me years to stop wetting myself after being diagnosed, this disease, type one, it’s smart and I just wanted to say thanks for sharing your story and that you’re brave and courageous, remember to check your blood every night before bed. Best wishes.
