    When you were in the hospital...
    What was your blood sugar? I know of a 400 case and 700. Also, how long did your doctor say you had it before it was diagnosed?
    And...
    Were you sensitive to light?

    -999 (High as meter could go)
    -1 year
    -No

    b.s. was in the 400's

    My lil' sister's was 800 and had been that high for a very long time. She couldn't see hardly anything and it took a while to recover--she also developed cataracts about six months after being diagnosed and was almost blind within three weeks. Her feet swelled about a week after she got out of the hospital, which the doctors said meant she'd had it a lot longer than they thought. She weighed about 65 pounds when she should've weighed 100.

    Oh my goodness!! I've had trouble with my eyes too, but mine were just blurry. I've never heard of anything like that before, thank goodness it was caught before she got worse!

    -Somewhere in the 400's.
    -They didn't say, but I started to notice it about 5 months before I was diagnosed.
    -No.

    Weird thing is, my eyesight actually sometimes got better. For a few days I didn't need my glasses, and in the hospital it was blurry with my glasses on.

    425.
    I don't know how long I had it, but between two and thirteen months seems most probable. My hemoglobin A1c was off the charts- 16 is the highest they go and mine tested 16, so it was probably higher. They say that people who develop type 1 diabetes as adults (I am almost 18) tend to have longer onsets.
    My eyes hurt from the light, and my night vision has gotten noticably worse. My vision in general had been very variable.

    The reason for those cramps was a lack of potassium.
