Back to Kid' Voices Alexia

Hi. My name is Alexia. I'm 11 years old and live in Florida.

I was diagnosed with diabetes on July 21st, 2005. I had the most common signs. I was eating frequently, drinking frequently, always tired, etc. When I went to the hospital my blood sugar was 624 mg/dl. The doctor said if I had waited another day I would have been in a diabetic coma.

Now I am wearing the pump. I am using the Deltec Cozmo pump. I do not have to take any more shots and have better control over my blood sugars.

You can email me at Dotgirls AT
