Hello all
I thought I was run down due to worrying about my dad being taken Ill, I felt like I had a bad cold and chesty cough, I struggled through going to work, literally dragged myself to work, the next day I was suffering a fever in bed and just couldn’t make it to work I couldn’t even walk and was suffering extreme lower back pain in my right side , the OH convinced me to go to the doctors so we managed to get a late appointment, I struggled into the gp and after a few tests he said he thought I had pneumonia and that I would need an X-ray but no point going now as the department closes at 4pm, it would be upto me if I wanted to go to a&e and wait for an X-ray there , he advised me to wait and go the next day, prescribed me some antibiotics and sent me off ..
I managed to take the first antibiotics and the OH insisted on going to a&e to get X-ray’d as I was in so much pain breathing ..

We arrived at a&e and waited to be seen, I got called in after about an half hour wait, as soon as I walked through the door the nurse took one look at me and said why on earth are you not in hospital , that’s more or less the last thing I remember,  she took my blood sugar levels and they were through the roof, before we knew it I was being hooked up to an iv drip wired upto moniters and being transferred via blue flashing lights to Blackburn Hospital I was in a Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and spent 24 hours in resus, it’s a potentially life-threatening complication of diabetes ... DKA is typically diagnosed when testing finds high blood sugar, low blood pH, and ketoacids in either the blood or urine.  treatment of DKA is with intravenous fluids and insulin..

They found I was type 1 Diabetic, had pneumonia, and needed two blood transfusions for anemia .. I’m home now and getting used to injecting insulin and testing my blood sugar four times a day , still on a mountain load of tablets and antibiotics and off work for another few weeks yet, I have my first appointment with the diabetic clinic tomorrow so they can review my levels I’ve been struggling to get them right so already had insulin increased , fingers crossed I can get some more information at my appointment it’s all been a whirlwind the past couple of weeks. I’m also waiting for an appointment to have a camera inserted as they say I am loosing blood into my stomach so on tablets for ulsers too ! 

Thank you all for the well wishes for my dad.. he’s still the same, the heart attack has really knocked him he’s scared to go to sleep and refuses to go upto bed at night with my mum, they’ve never been apart and it’s taking its toll on my poor mum, they’ve been back to the doctors and they have put dad on anti depressants and diazepam, fingers crossed this helps for now as he is getting no rest at all ..

Back soon everyone

  1. Oh my goodness, what a shock for you to find out you are Diabetic Type 1 on top of everything else. Now is time for enforced rest and looking after yourself. Hope things are improving for your mom and dad. That's another worry that you don't need with everything else as well. Hope you are feeling better soon. Take care.

  2. That's a lot of things to deal with. Take good care of yourself x

  3. Oh gosh, how scary for you. My other half Alan, was on the verge of this on Friday of last week, and after a doctors visit we spent the day on the Rapid Assessment Ward while they ran lots of tests.

    He's a Type 2 diabetic and a nasty bout of food poisoning had sent his blood sugar levels through the roof, with ketones in both his water and blood. He was sent home with lots of medication and the instruction to have further blood tests this week to check that the medication is working properly. How quickly things can change!

    I do hope you are feeling better this week and are coping with the insulin injections okay.

    Take care xx
