    I just woke up at 289 with moderate ketones. :eek::( I rarely ever have ketones, even when I'm in the 400's. But, every once in a while I'll get them, and they are a pain to get rid of!

    I corrected with a shot with some extra insulin to get rid of the ketones. Hopefully I'll come down soon, as will the ketones. I have to babysit at 11:00. I think I'll bring my little sister along (she's 13, almost 14) just incase.

    Ugh...definately NOT a good way to start the day!!! :(

    aww i hope that you come down and that you get rid of the ketones easily enough. the biggest amount of ketones i've ever had was small, so i can't really help you there. but i hope that you feel better soon and that your babysitting job goes ok!

    How did you get ketones? Pump problem maybe? DS had small yesterday morning but it was my fault. I forgot to give his lantus the night before. :(

    I just got home from babysitting. I was 152 at lunch, and I'm down to negative ketones. Thanks for caring so much everyone!!

    I changed my site this morning, after I got the 305 reading. It seems to have helped. :)

    Awe, thanks! I am high again though. Before dinner I was 282. :( I gave a nice correction, and meal coverage though, so hopefully I'll get back down.

    Nope...can't win today..but hey, ya can't win all the time, especially with diabetes! :rolleyes: I just retested, and I am 313. So, I'm comming down, most likely because I drank 2 1/2 water bottles since I last tested! :eek: Tomorrow has to be a better day, lol. Atleast I dont have to babysit, or work tomorrow, so I will be able to keep an eye on my blood sugars more. What a day!!

    Another update...
    I'm 310, ketones are back. Not feeling the best right now, and I have this headache that is making it impossible for me to sleep. :( I feel like I am going to explode from all the water I drank tonight. Hopefully I can fall asleep soon.

    At about 4 this morning, I tested, and I was 357. So, I corrected and went back to sleep. Today, I wake up at 228!?! What the heck is going on!? Atleast there are no ketones...

    Yeah, but that didnt seem to help much at all. :( And we called my endo about these wacky numbers over a month ago, and she still never called back!!! An entire month, and a week!!! :eek: And now she is at camp NEJEDA for the week. My A1c is going to be horrible. I finally got it down to 7.8, and now I can almost guarantee a 10. :(

    I changed my site again today, and my numbers seem to be better. I usually have good results with arm sites. :rolleyes:
