This story from my local paper shot up some mental red flags.
Be careful out there...I know I don't always test before I get in the car, but maybe it's something more of us should think about before your local paper needs to run a story saying your accident was caused by "complications of Diabetes Type 1".
I think that's a very strange way to put things. Was her accident caused by passing out from high or low bloodsugar? Did something else happen, like a seizure? Would this have been preventable if she had some glucose tabs or took some insulin?
Normally, when I think of someone who has died from diabetes complications, I think of heart or kidney disease. A coma induced by ketoacidosis...
I guess the lesson we should all learn here is just do a test before you get in the car, especially if you feel like your body is trying to tell you something. It's 5, maybe 10 seconds of your time that will save your car and also possibly your life.
