    I've been asked by people how long I've been a diabetic and what my blood sugar was when diagnosed. I thought it'd be interesting to see how the differences are (my replies are in parentheses)

    1) When you were diagnosed (September 17, 1965 age of 5)

    2) What was your blood sugar level (875)

    2) How long were you in the hospital (one week)

    I'm game!


    1) When you were diagnosed (10 May 2002, age 13)

    2) What was your blood sugar level (600+, we checked on my older brother's meter, which caps out at 600. The meter said "HI" to me.)

    2) How long were you in the hospital (Never for diagnosis! They figured since my older brother was already t1 that my family knew what we were doing.)

    Campbell was dx'd July 2007 at age 9.

    His bgl when we got to the hospital (for what I thought was a worsening sinus infection) was 41mmol.
    It was at least 6 hours before they started insulin. His ketones were so large that they had to put him on a bicarb drip first, to get the ph level of his blood back towards normal. He was in and out of consciousness.

    We spent 5 days in the hospital, after being sent by ambulance to the children's hospital and him into the PICU for the first 24 hours.

    Phillip was dxd Jan 27, 2005, which was the first day of the new school year for us.
    His blood sugar was 27.8 (500)
    He was in hospital for a week, but that was mainly for the training, as I didn't have a car to go back and forth for it.

    1) When you were diagnosed -Kayla was dx April 24, 2010 at age 14

    2) What was your blood sugar level - hard to say, it wasn't a one time thing. She was seen, sent home.. told to call in two days with all her bg levels for those two days and then admitted to the hospital. The highest reading on those would have been upper 200's, in the hospital I think the highest blood draw was 239 2 hours pp after she had had lantus the night before, testing to see if she needed to add humalog.

    2) How long were you in the hospital - Went in at 5pm and left the next day at 9pm.

    2. The first blood sugar reading on a meter was 425, when I was admitted to the hospital later in the day the meter said 375 and the reading from the blood draw was 453 mg/dl.
    3. Went to a local ER Friday afternoon. Was transferred to a children's hospital and admitted to the children's hospital at 2 AM Saturday. Was discharged from the children's hospital around 7 PM Tuesday.
