Thank God my sister's son is very intelligent and self aware..He noticed his tongue looked different while at school and went to the school nurse…My sister took him to the doctor who said if he hadn't of been so self aware…he wouldn't of made it through the day without slipping into a coma…

Wow, that is incredible. Specially at such a young age. It is good that he's been diagnosed, as now they can move into better health for him.

May I ask how his tongue looked? I have not read that as a symptom, and it might help other people to look for that.

Sorry to learn about your nephew's Dx as a T 1. Thank God that he was aware enough to say something to someone in time.
