Re: [IP] Can someone tell me if the following is true



Sylvia
It is not Ketones I am talking about.
It is the glucose testing strips I am talking about.
Recently Ben had what we thought was a urinary tract infection.  I have some
test strips that test for thing that are common with a bladder infection.
When testing Ben we found glucose in his urine, even if he was well in
range.
Ben has never had ketones.  He is tested regularly and if he is over 360 on
two tests.  We have never found ketones with the urine strips or the
Precision Xtra.
