My DS is on his 3rd day of a nasty stomach bug and fever. We have managed to keep his bg in range. He is getting only basal because he is not eating. Only having some popsicles to keep his bg up. He has developed starvation ketones. I called the on-call endo last night and he didn't seem concerned with the ketones. Because he is still able to keep enough liquid sugar down he said I don't have to take him to the hospital. But now is another day where he doesn't want to eat. His ketones (I'm using the urine strips) are larger now. I realize that non-d people can develop starvation ketones, but are they more of a concern for someone with diabetes? I am taking him to his pediatrician this afternoon to get an opinion on things as well. I'm not looking for any kind of medical advice, but just want more of an understanding of starvation ketones and how they affect someone with diabetes. Thanks!
