Let's start at the beginning of this story - I'm going to Europe this summer with Girl Guides.
It's gonna be AWESOME!
Right now we're getting into the health stuff - putting diabetes on health forms and such.
I got sent some information today from somebody wanting to know if it was correct.
I won't put it all here because it's long, but it's hilarious. I just can't even.
I won't even get into how out-of-date it is (I don't think it's officially called insulin shock anymore) - also hypo/hyperglycemia can be caused by so much more than just excess/lack of insulin.
But the thing that got me the most? 'Symptoms of diabetic coma.' It goes on to list the symptoms of really high blood sugars. Which is really funny, 'cause I don't know 'bout you, but I'm thinking the symptoms of a diabetic coma are 'lying on the ground, unconscious and unresponsive'. Pretty sure that's what a coma means.
I shouldn't find this funny, 'cause it really is serious. But I can't not. "Are you in a diabetic coma?" "I don't know, am I?"
So many lies. Be careful of what you take to be true! :)
