[IP] STRESS KETONES & SEATBELT BOLUS'
Wanted to comment on two items in the digest.
#1 About the person who was asking when to "expect" ketones, as some people
said over a certain BG and some said other BG. Anyhow, Paddy gets that
breath--that finger nail polish remover breath--when he is stressed, and I
know I need to slow him down, expect a high BG and ketones within an hour or
so. But at the time I can smell that breath, no Ketones and no high BG.
Weird, eh? High blood sugar Ketones don't cause that breath warning
though--only the ketones caused by "stress." We are talking overwhelmed by
life stress here, not sickness by the way.
#2 Fantastic thing to pass on about the seatbelt giving that man phantom
bolus'. MY son's seatbelt, as most children's hits him right over the
pump. A couple of times on a recent long car trip he said "AH! I think I
dosed myself!!" I am going to be MUCH more careful about pump placement vs.
seatbelt placement. Is there a case the COMPLETELY surrounds the pump for
situations such as this? We presently use the cloth case the is meant to go
on the waist like a beeper. But he prefers to use it in the necklace form.
As such, it hangs about mid/chest or upper belly depending on his whims that
One last thing. Paddy will be having an endoscopy on Monday the 22nd to
determine whether he has
a) Celiac--seems a good prospect
c)some malabsorbtion disease that has to do with fat instead of gluten. I
cannot for the LIFE of me think of the name, and, for many reasons, I did
not get it written down in the doc appt yesterday. It sounded to me like
"infantile (or some other word that starts with "i") Lympho-something or
other. The LONGEST word you have EVER heard!" Anyone recognize that? LOL
