JUNE 14, 2011 [Desserts, DKA] The value of having a personal support network
My entire family helps me - My wife reads the back label of all purchases at the grocery, my grown children drink “preppy micro-brew beer” but always have light beer in the house for me, during family celebrations my 87 year old mother always makes sure there is fruit for dessert. . He held my hand in the emergency room (I was in DKA), told me that he would help with all of the new eating habits, and has been there ever since.

OCTOBER 14, 2007 [Desserts, DKA] October Showers-Part 1
And I'm about to go to a dessert shower-for heaven's sake. Ignore the situation, enjoy the shower, and go into DKA 4 hours later. Back to dessert shower, fiance meets me, we go in and enjoy the party.(despite more then anything else) It usually signifies ketones & impending DKA. I've duly arrived at the scene of the impending party, checked my blood sugar(96) and had lunch at a nearbye Taco Bell.

SEPTEMBER 13, 2010 [Desserts, DKA] My Own Definition of LADA
I was close to DKA and coma when I hit the ER. Nine months later I was in severe DKA and was declared a Type 1. Yet, I never went into DKA all those years and my sugars were usually around 200 which I know because once meters came out that’s where they were.
