    We got a call on Friday night approx 11:15pm from the hospital in our area, the nurse on the other end said that our son, Jesse (15 yrs old) had been brought in by ambulance and was unresponsive & incoherent. When we got to the hospital he was still incoherent, throwing up and his heart rate was 140 beats per minute. We tried to get the series of events that lead to the ER visit from his friends, which were not able to talk about it. We did get that they were sitting at the kitchen table telling jokes, Jess stood up and said he wasn't feeling well, made a couple of sounds and hit the floor, said he felt like he was dying, and then became unresponsive & incoherent at that time. His blood glucose level was 185 when the ambulance arrived, and when check at the hospital is was 135. The doctor feels as if it wasn't T1 related. Took Jess to the dr on Monday, the dr is almost positive that it was a seizure, not related to T1.
    Has anyone ever had this happen to their T1 teen? Was it ever diagnosed properly? :(

    I have not heard of it, wish I could give you some help, hopefully his Endo could answer those questions.

    Sorry this happened,
    maybe someone here has insight, but at least you have his doctors on it.
