I think you miss my point. My point was not that you shouldn't find
yourself in that situation. And it's not that you shouldn't follow any
rules. It's that I still don't see that there's anything different you
need to do in that situation that you wouldn't do for moderately high
BGs. I don't believe there's some magic point above which my body starts
behaving totally differently - things just get more severe as the BG
increases and as ketones develop, and thus you need gradually more
aggressive treatment as you go up the scale of high BGs and ketones. I'm
not dismissing the importance of treating DKA (or any high BG) fast and
taking it seriously.
Does that make more sense?
