I had to take my daughter into the ER for a stomach bug Sunday morn. She could not keep anything down and we live an hour away from the hospital where her endo is. When we got there she had large ketones. First off they wanted to go by the ketones in her urine and not in her blood so I had to educate them on the difference. Then the doctor said that IV's would not really help with flushing the ketones. I thought what!!! I told him that I was not leaving until she could keep liquids down and her ketones came down. So they sent us to a waiting room. Did not even keep her in a room. Luckily the Zofran really helped and we were able to go home in a couple of hours. How can an ER doctor at a well respected hospital be so uneducated about diabetes. I just feel like everytime I take her I have to educate them. It is just so frustrating.
