Re: [IP] Ketone Testin



Recently had moderate ketones with a blood sugar in the 500's.  For several 
reasons I could not go to the emergency room so my doctor over the phone told 
me to take so many units of insulin as a bolus and increase my basals by a 
 certain amount for a certain amount of time. IN ADDITION, I was to drink a
quart
of water each hour to flush the ketones out of my system and to test my blood 
every hour.  

All those trying to get ketones out of your systems, in addition to taking 
the extra insulin, don't forget the water and CONTACT YOUR Doctor for specific 
instructions!

Good Luck!
