i have just come out of hospital after a dramatic 2 day stay. i am 10 years old. on monday morning i went to the doctors because i had been weeing alot and had been being very thirsty, i had also lost quite a bit of weight. i went to the doctors (as i was saying) on monday and i did a urine test, and the doctor told me that i had got diabetes and she sent me too the hospital. when i got there they did the first finger-prick test (ouch!) and then i went to the treatment room were they put a canular (i think thats how you spell it) in the top of my hand. after that it was a day of blood and ketone testing ( and sleeping!) in hospital. i had to stay one night and( even though its only been two days) i can do my injections and blood and ketone testing by myself! i have to do it 4 times a day. i saw the diatition and (thankfully) i dont have too change too much of my food as i didnt eat too many sweets! if anybody has some good advice i would be extremaly thankfull! from chloe.
