Doctors Send 5-Year-Old Home With Antibiotics For Her Sore Throat - Make A Huge Mistake

Little Kycie was complaining to her parents that she had a headache, which progressed into fatigue, a stomach ache and a bad sore throat. According to Little Things, the 5-year-old’s parents took her to the doctor and she was sent home with antibiotics and diagnosed with strep throat.

However, Kycie just got sicker. Jamie and Josh Terry brought to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City where she suffered a seizure on the way. This is because she had diabetic ketoacidosis and a blood sugar level that was 10 times the average for a child her age.

Blood tests revealed that the girl was misdiagnosed and actually had Type 1 diabetes. From then on Kycie got worse, better, than worse again. She had to re-learn to sit up and speak and eventually regained her functions.

However, she got sicker again and eventually passed away in her father’s arms on July 11, 2015. The Terry family has started a fundraising campaign to spread awareness about undiagnosed and warning signs of diabetes so that no other parent has to endure the same tragedy that they did.
