I took my daughter to a doctor appointment to find out why she was so thirsty all of a sudden. Well, we didn't leave until 3 days later. She was admitted to the hospital. Her sugar level was 736 and her A1C was 12.5. They said if I would have waited 3 days longer she would have been in a coma. I had no clue. My daughter is 17 years old and now has to take insulin the rest of her life. I'm still in shock that she is diabetic and I'm affraid of needles to top it off. I'm so thankful that she is in good spirits with it but I'm a nervous wreck. If you can give me any advice on cooking for a diabetic I would sure love the information. We were told to count her carbs.
