I am just curious on other's diagnosis stories.. When I was diagnosed I went into DKA. I fell into a coma for 25 hours, I got to the point that I couldn't even recognize my own mother. The months before I was thirsty and dehydrated and couldn't get enough liquid.. not just any drink though, sugary juices and pops.. I also had dry skin in my hands and feet and I was so tired always. On Christmas Eve morning I couldn't even walk, I was so dehydrated I couldn't speak either. My mom half way carried me to the car and I went to the doctor. My blood was 650.. I think. I got driven by ambulance to a small campus of Cincinnati Childrens (Librity campus, it's near my house) they couldn't find a vain for the IV, so I was brought to the main campus in Clifton. In the whole process I fell into a coma and was in one for about 25 hours, they even scanned my brain to make sure I didn't have brain damage. Chrismas day, the first present I got was Type 1 diabetes. Anyway, I was just wondering what other's diagnosis stories are? Thanks! Also one other question.. I have a friend who thinks they may have diabetes.. This wasn't a syptom of mine, but has anyone itched because of high bloodsugar or gained weight before diagnosed? Thanks again!
