Hello Everyone, My little Princess has just been diagnosed with type 1 about 4 mths ago. She is 2 1/2 years old. We had notice that she was lossing weight and she could not get enough to drink. She had lost 10lbs! We took her to the doc and he checked her urine and she had Large ketones then he did a blood sugar check and it was 593. The Doc then sent us to the hospital and said she is in ketosis so they sent her to icu. She was in the hospital for a week. We came home and a mth later we went back to the hospital b/c of large ketones and fever. It has been very hard for her and us. We struggle with this everyday now. We are trying to coup with all of this and are now getting comfortable with the carb counting and insulin.
