    My 14 year old sister was sent to the hospital on an ambulance for a seizure and they later found out she had type 1 diabetes after the few months before showing symptoms and acting like she was fine when something was up. She has been in the hospital for a month and a week because of her psychosis which was also diagnosed and also that she unfortunately got corona virus so she is isolating at the hospital.

    My primary doctor refused to look at my clucose monitor which I had been taking my sugar three times a day for 5 months because I was anorexic , as they said . But the numbers were really high and I nearly died because of there neglect if I haven't went to a different hospital I would have died . when I went it the new hospital they asked me what happened. I told them and that I had a meter they took it away and gave it to the doctor immediately and within an hour I was diagnosed type 1 . Almost lost my life because of the laziness of doctors . Please fight for yourself . They do care if you live or die

    I was going through pains while I contracted Type 2 Diabetes and then I came across how Dr IGUDIA on YouTube used his medication to cure the sick and I decided to contact him and he actually cured me from my Diabetes. You all can also contact him for help on any kind of disease on his YouTube channel

    Can someone answer my questions? (q1) For about a few weeks I have been feeling like shit. Just recently my dads girlfriend daughters diabetic alert dog pawed at my 3-4 times and was whining. She said he does that when her sugar is really high, and I have horrible headaches. I passed out a few times in my bed while on my phone during the day after not being tired and getting an okay sleep. But went pee about 6-7 times within 40-50 mins apart. I start shaking sometimes and feel the need to eat and feel better but not full enough. I don't drink water but I have been drinking ALOT of it and my mom thinks I fake things and if I say I don't feel good she says I am fine. Should I ask my dad to take me to urgent care? (Q2) I checked my sugar with my sister who is T1 and it runs in my family. My sugar was 200 almost 300. Then about 3 hours after my head was hurting and I felt dizzy so I looked again it was 50. So I ate an applesauce like my sister does when he sugar is low. I am 14 what do I do?

    this completely matches up with me, but i have gastroparesis so i can’t drink a lot even when i’m sooo thirsty

  9. Gemma Ainsworth

    My son (8 years old) was diagnosed 23/06/21. He had ALL the signs, but we had absolutely no idea due to the lack of awareness. He was in DKA but thank goodness our dr was on the ball and we were sent straight to a and e. A week in hospital and we’re home trying to get into a new normal of finger pricks and multiple injections of insulin. It’s devastating but I feel incredibly lucky that he’s still with us, not all children will be as fortunate 😢
    I hope in future there will be more awareness of type 1 in children, it could save lives

    i’m 17, and have been feeling extra tired along with dizzy whenever i stand up. i’ve also been having to pee about 4 times before i go to bed and during the night. Whenever i eat food i feel extremely hungry right after and my stomach even growls but i don’t have excessive thirst. i’ve just been worried mainly because i just never feel good and i haven’t had a day where i feel 100% recently anymore, and i’ve been really frustrated lately and forgetful. i’ve brought it up to my parents but no one takes me seriously so i don’t really know what to do, i can be overthinking it but idk

    my mouth is still thristy and dry even after I drink water. And my parents say I lost weight do I have diabetes? 😥

  13. Mia jones

    I am a type 1 diabetic, i was diagnosed when I started losing weight without any reason. I was taken to doctor where he did a couple of tests and he told us that I was a t1D. Since then i have been on insulin injections two times a day and have been monitoring sugars through blucon nightrider with freestyle sensor which keeps me updated every 5 minutes, so life is simple on that part

    My mom literally thought it was puberty too. Ive had type one for about 5-6 months

  15. Stormforce999

    My son aged 12 has just been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, so much of the video rings true all the warning signs were there looking back (the thirst, urinating more, losing weight etc).
    My son's blood sugar level were over 40 and he was very very ill with DKA, at the time of writing this he's still in hospital but thankfully on the road to recover thanks to the amazing work of the NHS in the UK.

    It can happen to anyone, we have no family history of type 1, please if you are watching please take note of the what is in this video
