Has anyone heard about false ketone readings. Its not one that I was told about when they went through everything at the hospital. We ended up at the hospital tonight. Not my choice I just rang to ask how much insulin to give my son as he was 3.8mml not eating temperature of 40 C and 2 + ketone’s. The doctor once I got there said I was right and did not need to go to the hospital (after waiting 2 1/2 hrs) That the ketone’s were more than likely from not eating rather than ketoacidosis. Give him his normal long acting insulin and only the rapid insulin if he eats or sick day rules if above 15 with the keytone’s. Why I could not be told that over the phone I don’t know.
Does anyone else here feel like they have to be a Diabetes Doctor when it comes to your children?
