I first discovered that I was Diabetic when I went to the local Doc with leg Pain. They checked my sugar and then 4 people came in the room and picked me up and through me on a gurney and hooked me up to an EKG! It scared the Dickens out of me,(Charles love his stories) I asked what the problem was and they said well your blood sugar is over 650. I said and what the hell does that mean? The Doc said well you should be in a Comma. So started my Diabetic Ride.

I was diagnosed at 12 years old. I was going in for a scoliosis check up, and the doctor decided to run more test. he discovered I have T1. He told my parents I was very lucky, because they caught early. My BG at the time of diagnoses was in the 200s.

I figured it out before the doc too…
I was actually watching a MASH episode with a helicopter pilot who was diabetic and didn't want to get grounded… figured out all my symptoms.

Wow charlie, what an exciting Diagnosis story!

Mine is almost anticlimatic as I "knew" that I had it before the Dr confrimed it.

I was so clueless to the whole Diabetic thing and then took the sever step to too low sugar , within two days my sugar was 45. I just ate fish and ToFu ! what a trip and a half. In a year I lost 100 pounds too. With God all things are possible !!
