I had hypoglycemia most of my life. My pancreas just worked too hard! At one month before my 21st birthday it shut down and I had no idea. I went to the doctor for feeling sick and they ran tests. I was sent to the emergency room because I was in DKA and had no idea what that was. I was there for 3 days and started insulin shots. After a few weeks I was lucky enough to get my Dexcom. My life has changed a lot. I have other illnesses that make it harder to deal with, but I am grateful for my endocrinologist and my t slim pump!
