Emma was experiencing sporadic and odd symptoms that she could not explain, including headaches, exhaustion, and bruising. Nothing seemed to help Emma feel better. After one particularly bad day of feeling weak and lethargic, Emma was taken to the doctor to have her blood tested. The tests showed that Emma’s sugar levels were too high to register in the office, so she was rushed to the hospital. Emma spent four days in the hospital after her sugar levels were seven times higher than normal and was diagnosed with pre-metabolic disorder, a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin.
Emma must now wear an insulin pump to properly manage her sugar levels, but remains a strong and joyful girl. According to her mother, Emma has a great sense of humor and a passion for nail art. Determined in both life and school, Emma would love a new laptop as she thinks it would allow her to excel even more in school.
