She drinks a lot water and pee a lot for many weeks. She didnt like take any pills so she didnt have diabetic pills reqularly as well. 2 days ago,we sent her to hopsital because she nausea, vomit, stoma pain, talking funny, disorientaion, confusion, Dr said her plasma glucose level was 40 mmol/L, WBC higher than normal range, Na was slightly lower than normal range, K was higher than normal range, most other data all ok, vital signs( T:37.3, P: 99, R: 25 had acetone smelling breath, BP: 171/98), skin flused, dry, warm. polydipsia.
