Jennifer, first off I should say I am not a doctor nor is TuDiabetes a substitute for medical advice. Having said that, I would recommend checking out this LADA (type 1.5 diabetes) resource page that answers many of the questions you ask: http://www.tudiabetes.org/notes/LADA_Diabetes
oh good, yes, that sugar-free poetry book is pretty powerful. I'm glad you're trying to learn about everything. I've come close to DKA a couple of times, and it feels really bad. lots of members here got dx'd because they went into DKA and they universally report feeling horrible.
DKA is very serious. You can die. We have had at least one member, a young lady like yourself, die from DKA since I've been a member here. I will send you the video Manny made about her death and how it shook us to the core. If you've been experiencing high blood sugars and have high ketones, feel nauseated, are throwing up, have heart palpitations, these are all symptoms of DKA, you need to go to the ER right away.
So true, right?!! My students are older...but still, don't want to frighten them, especially the younger levels. Nor do I want "stories" to go home!! If you know what I mean.
That's exactly what I do...giving them an activity/assignment they can work on by themselves...I do a lot of reading/conversations with my classes...and a low often causes me to lose the flow of what I'm reading/saying, and my hands shake. When we're in a reading circle (everyone taking a turn)...I would surrender my turn to a child who is a very capable reader, 'till I felt "normal" again! So far it has always worked out.
GOOD FOR YOU!!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!! But a word to the wise here............Don't forget you got the D. Learned that one the hard way! Looooong story just suffice to say I DO need the insulin! LOL! All is soooooo much better than the other week!
Oh no kidney problems but according to him it C_O_U_L_D happen. I was born w/one kidney and it's been working fine now for 46 years. It took off one year b/c it could no dilasis but lots of meds! LOL! Thank you for always being here! You may live to regret it one day when I've had it over my head and gotta spout off! LOL! Just remember that I'll get over it! LOL!
Been doing but not so good! I had a Drs appotiment that put me over the top with the kidney Dr him and my Endo don't agree and I take my Endo's side! Other than that my bs haven't agreed with this HOT weather! LOL! I don't mean to sound so negative just had one of those weeks! You know the kind where you should have slept through it? LOL!
