MY daughter was feeling bad all day yesterday. It started out because she was high late in the day the day before, in the low 400’s. So we corrected and she came down to about the low 200’s and we corrected again and she came down into the low to mid 100’s. SO I really didn’t think much of it. But she woke up in the morning with a tummy ache and felt crummy all day. So since she felt crummy she wasn’t eating and wasn’t getting much insulin. She never went higher than mid-200’s. I finally thought to check for ketones and sure enough she had them.
So other than checking for ketones earlier what should I have done? It’s hard to push insulin when they aren’t feeling like eating. I thought she had a stomach bug. She’s been that high before and worse and didn’t get ketones. I guess the only good thing is that now she knows what it feels like when she has ketones and we hopefully won’t repeat. But I’m a still a bit confused that she even got ketones this time. Maybe we’ve just been lucky before, I don’t know.
