Re: [IP] Here we go again....



In addition, if you are running ketones, you shouldn't be out running 
around.   You should be on total bed rest until you can get them down!!!  
This is crucial!!!

This is not advise, just a comment about what we do when illness
strikes. We've seen insulin requirements rise as much as 50% when a
bug strikes -- temporary basals for several days usually have taken
care of the high bg's. We usually raise the basals 0.1 u at a time
until bg's level out, being very conservative while doing so. Talk to
your med team, I'm sure they will help out.
