Alright soo the big question is why am I here? Well lets see i was diagnosed in 2009 originally with type 2 diabetes..i was upset and managed it quite well for awhile, and then,... i just stopped. So fast forward to Sept 27 of this year 2011. I go into the ICU diagnosed with DKA. Scary stuff huh? Was in the hospital for about 4 days, mostly because my potassium was still very low. But that friday They decided to let me go, along with potassium meds to take at home.. Well i've been managing and staying on top of it pretty well since then. Most of the time my blood sugar NEVER exceeds the 100 range which is a great start for me. I found out about this site from from my already wonderful Diabetic Educator,Bev. I cant wait to make another appointment with her! Welp, That is just a brief summary of my story! and i look forward to hearing yours' too!
