10. I remember having to miss a ton of my 4th grade school days, but I caught up somehow and survived the school year. My teacher was wondering why I kept getting so thirsty all the time in the weeks leading up to my diagnosis (I was wondering, too!).

8....I feel very bad for the babies and toddlers. I hear that some people are glad that they got it an a young age so they don't know anything differently, but the older your diagnosis is, the less complications you will have at an earlier age.
Good one I already had complications from getting older when I got dx'ed LOL That was at 52
I was almost 11 when I was diagnosed. It was when I was in 5th grade because I remember going to watch my friend preform in the talent show the night before I was put in the hospital. I felt awful...then I missed like only 3 days of school and the morning I went back my friend was waiting for me and I told her and she was like "Your kidding." It took a while for everyone to get used to it because I was the first diabetic at my elementary school.
My daughter was diagnosed earlier this month at age 5.
My third grade teacher would get so mad at me because every few minutes I would ask to go to the water fountain and the bathroom- she thought I was just goofing off, but I couldn't help it!!
I was finally diagnosed at 10 months although I had been hospitalized for about 2 weeks. July 1966.
I was diagnosed at 16 on christmas day
I was 8.
Although I was only diagnosed correctly after having passed out from Ketoacidosis…
So… maybe 7?
I was diagnosed at 14 years old, January 11th, 2012! Right after my mom was praying and wishing for a happy healthy new year after my sister suffered an AVM (like a brain hemorrhage in 2011! We can’t control what happens in our lives, but it only makes us stronger!
