Re: [IPk] ketones with normal blood sugar

We are carefully monitoring Grace's food/ insulin picture to out rule
starvation ketones. I am sure we are the exception to the rule. It was just
that I dismissed my gut concerns  a year and a half ago as I felt the
"probably typical" argument made sense and I had nothing else to go on.
Apparently there is a definite pattern of a percentage of children with the
problem with low dose basals. Grace is 0.3umits from 3am to 9am.
