[IPp] re: hospital - ketones

Carol, never mind about heparin and diabetes...I found the
answer. I *vaguely* remembered reading something about using it
in DKA (but couldn't remember why) so I looked it up in one of my
books. They do indeed use it in DKA when severe dehydration is
present (assuming there are no contraindications for its use.)
So, for what it's worth...  :)
