Re: [IP] When to check for ketones?


  Being on the pump means not having any long acting insulin on board 
anymore.  Because of this pumpers MAY be proned to KTs more frequently and at 
a lower BG level.  Again, this is a generalization and does NOT mean that it 
is this way for everyone.  I read that when on the pump you should start 
checking KTs at around 250 but for some that number may be lower.  It is 
DEFINATELY a YMMV type of thing!
