I’m a 32 year old female just diagnosed about a week ago. I was hospitalized for 4 days with DKA. My glucose levels are still very unstable and had to take a week of sick level, but was wondering if I should take some FMLA time-off / short term leave to get my levels more stable and learn how to do this new type 1 diabetic routine.
Are there others out there like me or others who recommend that I take some time off of work? Please share how FMLA works and if you recommend it. My fear is that I go back into work too quickly and end up back into the hospital. Please advise with your thoughts.
