My son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 4. I actually had a glucose machine in the house we had for my husband cause he was borderline type 2 so we were keeping a watch on it. so my son was getting up all hours of the night wanting drinks and using the bathroom. so 1 morning I got tired of the getting up all night and I got the machine out and I checked his blood. the number was 441. I couldnt belive it! I called the doctor to tell him what was going on and they told me to go to the hospital. when we got there they took us right away which was also odd. when we got into the back they did his blood it was 501 and he has Hi ketones. I didnt even know what they were talking about. we spent a week in the hospital. the little boy that was my sons room mate was teaching me about type 1 and how was best to help my son. right now he is doing ok it could be better he is still concidered to be out of controle. but thank god he hasnt been hospitalized any more. I never miss any of his appointments. If you wouldl like to talk, you can e-mail me I sent you a request. Thank you Debbie
