    It took about 2 days to get it down, very slow process, she was also very dehydrated, and had to have potassium replacement and other treatments, to be honest we were in a daze for 3-4 days in intensive care, moving on now though.

    60 mmo/ml.. after spending 8 hrs on my bedroom floor i was found from somebody that came for visiting. my body temperature was 32 and i was actually dead i think...my skin was blue, my body stiff, and have no memories from the moment i managed , dont ask me how, to lift my arm to open the window to my hero, that saved me that day. after 24 hours i was alive again. big scare !!!! always check your blood sugars my brothers. this illness can kill us in very little time. just hours before that happened to me, i was busy looking for my cat that went missing that same night.

    Highest in 21 years of t1 was recently 26.4, went for a Chinese, New to insulin pump and had a dodgy cannula so got no insulin for a few hours right when I really needed it. Quickly sorted though. :)

    I was 30 mmol/l the day I was diagnosed twelve years ago. Have the very very seldom one in the twenties and let me tell you you just feel nasty. It's just not good.
