Back to Kids' Voices Kirstin

My name is Kirstin. My mommy and daddy took me to the doctor's on March 26, 1999 because I was vomiting and going to sleep a lot, and I was peeing the bed a lot too.

At my doctor's, they did a blood test and it was 458, I had fruity breath, 10% dehydration, and had ketones. I still get them sometimes. I was admitted to Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Children's Hospital of Illionis.

I'm on Humalog and Humulin Ultralent. If you would like to me and my mommy you can e-mail us at
