Hey folks, I was actually just wondering.
How long can a type 1 diabetic go without any insulin at all?
I got diagnosed like 6 weeks ago, and have been taking my insulin ever day since then.
But I been a little depressed lately, and just haven't taken any insulin at all today.
And this got me wondering, how long could one last without insulin??
I know before I was diagnosed, I think I was diabetic for a while, until I eventually went into ketoacidosis and found out I'm a type 1. but does that mean before I DKAed my pancreas was dying?? and it finally quit on me when I went to the hospital. or was it straight up dead a while ago, and I just went into DKA??
