What happens if i am diagnosed with type 1 diabetes?

Will I have to go to the hospital if I am diagnosed with type 1 diabetes? If so, what will i do there? Will they just teach me how to control my diabetes? Will they just monitor me? Will they do anything that hurts to me besides insulin injections, and checking my blood sugar?

    i'm not quite sure why you're asking this if you haven't even been diagnosed. did your doctor tell you he suspects you have t1? there is no way that a doctor would tell you that and then simply send you home without insulin or education. you don't even know if you have it, you don't claim to have any symptoms, and yet you're jumping to conclusions. take it one step at a time instead of freaking out over this. oh, and you DON'T need a catheter unless you are severely ill, unconscious, or physically unable to void on your own. stop obsessing over this…it's not healthy!
