where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Has anyone else ever had DKA? I had it last year and was in the intensive care unit a few days and was curious if anyone else has ever had a severe case.

Our teen daughter, 10 when she was diagnosed, had DKA at that time. I'm told it is not uncommon at diagnosis. And it's always something to keep watch for.
