That is an astoundingly high BG. Wow.

574 at dx on 1/12/82 (I don't think I've ever been higher)
23 (and I actually had the wherewithal to test myself, though I couldn't think what to do once I saw that number...)

/\/\

1440

27

High 700 > ended up in hospital
Low > 35

I was 342 when I was diagnosed and I don't think I've gone higher than that, although breakfast continued to spike me back up into the 300s right after I was diagnosed.

My lowest blood sugar was 32. I was in the middle of eating a slice of pizza. I was experimenting with splitting the bolus to avoid spikes from fatty foods, so I had only taken half the dose of insulin I needed to the cover the meal. I still went low! I'm still confused by the incident--who goes low while chewing on a pizza crust? But I don't particularly care to have pizza for a while, so I guess it's a good thing. ;)

Ihave an 11 yr old and an 8 yr old who are both T1
11 yr old High HIGH (over 500 that's as high as our meter goes)
and Low 40
8yr old High 695 at diagnosis
LO (below 20) 1 week after diagnosis. (He was 19 months old)

Highest, "High", lowest, "low"

High 910

Low 22

High was the day i finally went to see the doc and was told I was T1

900 when diagnosed, and 34

414 -DX at my dictor's office they couldn't see exact numbers so I've walked to emergency room nearby, lol
37 and didn't feel it coming. Was taking a walk with my baby in a stroller. Happend to be in a lonely place in the park, with 1 year old. Scary

I'm British so I just get 'High' or 'Low'. I think my meter goes as high as 33 and as low as 1.1 so I've been above/below that but I can't really be sure. It would sure be interesting to know.

927 at DX in ER
and 42 for the low

High: HIGH (guess i had one of those meters)
Low : 20-something
