Hello! I have just found this site and hope to learn and share lots of useful information. I have been a type 2 diabetic for about 10 years, but was recently hospitalized for DKA. I can tell you that that was terrifying for myself and my family. I had no idea of what was going on; I thought I had the flu. 2 days after my symptoms started, my husband took me into the emergency room where they diagnosed me with DKA after taking 3 doses of a new medicine. Anyway, I survived, that's what I do. That's what we ALL do!!! I am happy to be here.
