I am SO glad to hear about this.  I HATE to drink plain water!  Love to drink
diet soda, but it doesn't help any with ketones (at least not for me).  Do you
think adding a flavor to the club soda would make it taste even better while
it's doing its job?  Maybe like some kind of extract?   Thanks!

I had problems with my silhouette set last night, the tubing came out from
under my skin and was laying on top of the tape. Since they are the same
color I didn't even see it.
I didn't really start looking until this morning when I woke up with a 339
and sick from moderate ketones.
Mini-Med should make the tape or the tubing different colors.

My  next question is when you discover the problem of high BG and ketones
are there any foods better for you then others when you are hungry and want
to eat that would help your body flush the ketones out.(besides water)
