MOM USES SOCIAL MEDIA TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT TYPE 1 DIABETES THAT KILL HER DAUGHTER

 In the midst of intense sorrow, this mom is sharing to parents a potential life-saving information to save more life of children. Wella Sia took to Facebook on Tuesday, May 17, to share a story about the sudden death of her daughter, Nathalie Sophia or 'Pia' in short.



May 11, 2022, they noticed that Pia was feeling sick. At first, she and her husband thought that Pia's weight loss was normal since she described her as a 'picky eater' but cheerful and physically energetic like any other normal kids.

Worried parents decided to send Pia to the hospital on the next day, May 12, but her doctor gave her some vitamins and medicine for deworming. They went home, but still Pia was still drowsy, feeling lazy the whole day.



"Halos ayaw umalis sa bed, ayaw kumain na tlga puro inom lang ng gatas, water at juice.. uhaw na uhaw sya lagi," Wella wrote.




Bothered parents wasn't convinced that Pia could gain energy, so they decided to sent her to the emergency room of the hospital on May 14. Her doctor has conducted several laboratory tests to know some abnormalities in Pai's body, but they found nothing and everything was normal.



"From 4 pm to 11 pm nasa ER kmi, snbi ko lahat ng nangyari, history ng family nmin sa diabetes but after conducting yung blood and urine test nya sabi lang nila na wala nmn daw sakit si Pia, normal lang nmn.. I even showed them yung breathing ni Pia, sabi ko Tingnan nyo po normal po ba yan parang ang lalim nya huminga."




"Ang ginawa lang is binilang ung breathing nya nung nurse and then sinabi nya sa Doctor and they say na Mommy normal lang yang breathing nya for her age. Hindi ako mapalagay sinabi ko pa sa Doctor na, hindi nyo po ba man lang sasaksakan sya ng dextrose or anything mkahelp na bumalik energy nya. Wala din. Pinawi nila kami that night, 11 pm.. walang resetang gamot.. nag agree lang sila sa first reseta ng Pedia Doctor na tumingin sknya nung May 13 which is again, ASCORBIC ACID, MULTIVITAMINS and Gamot for DEWORMING and advice lang din na damihan ang fluid intake. Take note, nung dinala nmin si Pia dun kaya nga pa maglakad at nakakapag salita p sya kahit nanaghihina," she continued.



After several hours of staying in the hospital they left home, but on the early morning of May 15, Pia was uncomfortable and coudn't sleep. They felt that her child's condition has worsen, this time they admitted her in other hospital, and quickly the doctors give to them their diagnoses but unfortunately, Pia was in critical condition and passed away, May 16.




"Lahat ng procedure na iadvice samin, snsbi nmin gawin nila kung ano yung best maging okay lang si Pia but hindi na tlga kinaya ng anak ko. May 16, 2022 kinuha na sya samin." 


According to Wella, Pia was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and the disease is potentially possible to any age.



"Durog ang puso ko hanggang ngayon at hindi ko alam kung hanggang kelan pero patuloy kong hina hanap ang Purpose ni Lord kung bakit nangyari to samin. And isang bagay na ipina ngusap sakin ni Lord is to share our experience to save many kids and spread awareness when it comes sa Type 1 diabetes. 



"Most of us, Mommy's and parents hindi naman talaga tayo knowledgeable sa disease na to, yung iba pa nga satin hindi aware na pwedeng magka diabetes khit super bata pa. YES, pwedeng pwede po magka diabetes khit bata pa especially kung nasa Genes ang sakit na diabetes."


She also narrated some of the symptoms she was observed from her late daughter, Pia.




"Symptoms na posibleng ma over look kasi akala natin normal lang sa bata.

1. Biglang sobrang daming uminom ng tubig, gatas, or any fluid.. parang laging uhaw na uhaw.

2. Sobrang lakas umihi to the point na nag leleak n ung ihi nya sa diaper or kapag potty trained nmn yung bata, hindi nya mapigilang umihi sa bed tuwing gabi.

3. Sudden weight loss

4. Walang gana kumain, gusto inom lang ng inom

5. Matamlay at nanghihina, gusto lagi lang nkahiga

6. Hirap huminga"



She asked parents to not ignore those symptoms because diabetes "can really take our children from us," she said. Wella's post went viral with 176K shares as of the posting time.
