    Due to excruciating pain. And you know what? They didn't check my BG not once in the six hours I was there. Crazy right? Turns out I have a urinary tract infection, bladder infection, and kidney infection UGH!!!!:(

    I hope you get some relief soon!

    It's unbelievale that they didn't check your blood sugar at all in 6 hours (assuming they knew of your type 1 history)! This is a prime example of why all of us parents of type 1's need to be advocates for our kids while they receiving medical care. We cannot assume that their blood sugars will be properly monitored and adjusted. Sad, but true. :(

    Cassie, you are right, it's absolutely insane that they didn't check you once. Granted, you're an adult handling your own d-care, but that doesn't absolve them from their responsiblity, imho.

    Hope you feel better soon.
