I know this is pretty late (at least in my end of the world), but I wondered what people do to bring their really high numbers down, when they have ketones.
I’ve been sick the last few days, and finally sucked it up and saw my GP. I think what ever my doc gave me, is having disastrous impact on my numbers. I had been hanging around the mid-upper 200s pre-doc visit. For at least 9 hours, I haven’t been able to get below 417. Twice my meter has read hi.I keep following my pump correction suggestions, but it is not bringing my bgs DOWN. To top it off, I can’t seem to get rid of the moderate-high ketones despite loads of water and what seems like massive boluses. I have already doubled my daily dose.
The doc gave me 2 different shots, and told me that neither one would affect or raise my blood sugar…ya think? There’s no way I’m starting the medrol dose pack tomorrow!
Sorry to be ranting… I had a couple of hours where I felt better, but now I feel really nautious and crummy. I broke down and took a regular injection for my last bolus about 2 hours ago, but my blood sugar headed back up to 487. Any suggestions? I don’t think I’m in serious danger or anything, but I hate cotton mouth, and I would like to actually sleep tonight. Diabetes SUX!!!
