In the endos office, and the resident just told me my symptoms are because of my "poorly controlled" diabetes. Lol She then went quiet when endo came in and we discussed my regime, adj & fine tuning
Hi. I was recently diagnosed with type 1. I'm in the hospital now because my blood sugar hit extremely high levels.I'm freaking out a bit because I hate needles.if anyone has any ideas, let me know!!!
Checked BS 3 times, all over 600. Won't register on meter. Have almost all the signs of DKA but mom won't take me to hospital because they aren't experienced with DKA and we would just waste our money. We can't go to another hospital because we dot have insurance there. Please help! I feel horrible!
Where can I get no cost or low cost diabetic supplies or insulin I have no health insurance and have a low income
Which supplies do you most commonly misplace, forget or lose altogether? How do you keep track of them?
