When I asked my endo about this, he told me that it's because my body 
is so accustomed to "normal" levels of bg due to my tight control, 
and when I get higher, it reacts quickly by spilling ketones.  I was 
surprised the first time this happened.  Actually I woke up with a bg 
of slightly over 200 (which is a rarity for me) and I didn't feel 
well and checked for ketones.  I also thought no one spilled ketones 
until they were much higher than that.
