A Doctor's Error Almost Killed Me

  • Type 1 diabetes affects millions of people all over the world; most being children. Type 1 diabetes is when our blood sugar levels are too high from low levels of insulin. In short, insulin helps the cells in your body absorb the glucose (sugar). Without it, your blood will be overrun with high blood sugar levels leading to heart, eyes, kidneys, nerve, and gum damage because your blood is too acidic. This is known as Diabetic Ketoacidosis or DKA and if left untreated, it could be life-threatening. Your body begins destroying itself from the inside out. This is what happened to this person due to a misdiagnosis at the hospital. At 10 years old, you don't really think much about your body. In fact, we all think our bodies are invincible at that age jumping off the playground, scraping our knees and brushing it off as if it was a small paper cut. But for her, she knew instantly that she was not well. Dehydration, thirst, frequent urination (peeing), and headaches are just some of the symptoms she felt all at once. When visiting the hospital, the doctors took her symptoms as a virus and told her to rest at home. But the reality was, her blood was growing more acidic by the minute because her body was no longer producing insulin. As she got worse her quick thinking mother grabbed a glucose meter and knew instantly her daughter was in danger of dying within hours. Rushing to the hospital doctors hooked her up on machines and rushing to control her acidic blood levels. Luckily, they were able to control it and she survived, but not with a catch. For the rest of her life, life all type 1 diabetics, she would have to monitor and inject herself every few hours a day. On top of this weight fluctuations, headaches, and tiredness will be with her for the rest of life and at random times. For most Type 1 diabetics, your life revolves around the needle and glucose meter, but it doesn't have to. You don't have to hide behind the needle and screen anymore. You can proudly say you have this disease and that's fine because you will rise above it. Don't let a disease (or any) take advantage of who you are, what you're capable of, and what you want to accomplish in life. You may have to walk an extra 10 steps than the person next to you, but those extra steps will only make you stronger and make you appreciate every step more. Don't think of it as the end to your life but the beginning of a new challenge that you will overcome. Thank you for supporting our channel and all of your support.

    So the next time you make a diabetes “joke” think about people with type one diabetes it’s not funny and definitely not something to joke about my sister has type one diabetes and every time some one jokes about this it makes me very upset.

    If the doctor even bother to check your glucose😕😕

    Where I live if you have symptoms of diabetes the first thing they'll do is so check your blood sugar levels

    I also got diabetes but my dad who is a professional doctor stopped it before it fully got to me.
    I got the most dangerous diabetes which had a huge chance of death but my dad put 2 drips on me for full days and I was alive. Alive but weak. I hated being weak. I had bean weak so long that my muscles couldn't pull or push more powerfull than my weak strength but I fought through it. Whenever I used a lot of strength my body would hurt but I pushed through it.That had happened 2 years ago but now I am fine. I thank my parents who are doctors for saving my life from near death.

    my uncle has diabetes(I'm pretty sure the same type as the girl in the video) he's been going through alot and he's just sick of doing dialysis for about 50 years now (he started having to do it when he was 5) he has alot of health stuff besides that too. he is on the list to get a new kidney, I am pretty sure he has a leg issue and arm so yeah. I don't get to see him much either science we are 15 hours apart, but surely is he the only relative that actually means something to me.

    I just got diagnosed with type 1 about 10 weeks ago and this video made me feel better. A good device I use to monitor my glucose meters is called a dexcom, you should search it up it is very helpful

    this is really sad. i have a cousin, a few years ago he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. he was only 5 okay he was so young to be diagnosed at that age, and what was worse was that he need to be mature and understand what was happening to him and what he had to do.
