Re: [IP] Ketones, anyone?

Dear Jane.. I hope that someone answered this sooner... How HIGH are your 
blood sugars and how high are you ketones?  Ketones are basically your 
body's reaction to high glucose and the break down of fats into acids... 
result?  UGLY!!!!! and DANGEROUS!!!!! If your glucometer reads :"High" 
[600+] go to the nearest ER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If the blood glucose is 
somewhat OK... do more insuliin...check if there is a problem with your 
pump.....I can't believe that your pump educator hasn't given you serious 
warnings about ketoacidosis...  Best bet...call yor MD NOW, or your 
glucometer manufacturer [they almoist all have 800 #  24/365]. or your pump 
manufacturer [also has a 24 hr 365 day advice line].  WHY would an MD allow 
you to go from 5.9 to 10.1 with out VERY SERIOUS readjustment!  You might 
thin k about a better MD!!!!!!!!!
Good Luck!  Jeanette
