Curiosity is getting the best of me and I feel like maybe I should take a POLL.
When Kacey was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes we went straight from the doctors office where she tested at a 385 with large ketones and was ketoacidosis....to the Emergency Room where we stayed for 4 hours while tests were run to confirm the diagnosis. After the confirmation, we were admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit where we stayed for 3 days (we were scheduled for 4 but we were let go a day early) I was under the assumption that when diagnosed you spent a few days in the hospital while your doctor stabilized the blood sugars and got you started on insulin and were taught the "Diabetes Crash Course". So this brings me to my question....
When YOU or YOUR CHILD was first diagnosed with Type 1, how long was your hospital stay? What year were you diagnosed?
Thank you all!
