Re: [IP] (IP) DKA Question

    Caitlyn has had both situations arise.  She went high for about 10-12
hours and went into DKA, and she has gone high for a day and a half and
nothing happened at all...and this has happened both with a malfunction and
not with one!  I think, for her, that it depended on her stress level, and
whether or not she was sick (or getting sick)...
    The Clinic team did warn us when she got the pump that it could send her
in to DKA faster if we were not careful.  You have to weigh the benefits...
for us, the 364 good days make up for one bad one that she MIGHT have.  As
always, YMMV!
