Re: [IP] thick /thin blood - ketchup

Dear Susan,
When one's BG goes up the body looses water. that is because glucose is 
drawing the water out of the body through osmosis as it get filtered through 
the kidneys. Your veins collapse because there is a decreased amount of total 
body water with the very high BG,'s. That is also why they pour a lot of 
fluids into you when you are in DKA, among other reasons. Hope this helps 
explain it a bit.
