That I post a question like, every day What was your child's a1c at diagnosis? Did they end up in the hospital at diagnosis? I think we must have caught it pretty early, Molly's a1c was 9.4. She was not hospitalized, her blood sugar was 317 at her pediatrician's office that morning and she was spilling glucose in her urine, but no mention of ketones. We went to the pediatric endo that afternoon and got our basic education and off we went. As time goes by and I process our experience I can't help but wonder if our experience was "normal" or if we got off pretty easy.
