      I think you got it right, there are three components but I think they are all produced together in the same proportions no matter what so that's not a factor. But I think there is a different aspect with DKA and the glucose messing up the feedback system. I think a lot of these sources assume you don't really want to know the reasoning behind it, just how to make it work on the ground. It is cool stuff, though. And it makes you wonder if there's some way to prevent DKA in type 1, that could be another way to refine treatment. Sorry you're frustrated, it's hard when you ask a question and best-meaning folks answer what they think you asked instead of what you did ask, I've been on both sides of that one.

      Oh, I think I just heard something about that. I had a friend die earlier this year, she was amazing, but she was my source for chicklit, always found me something fun but also not something that would make me wince from the content. Amazon. . . . . oh Amazon. . . .

      I will look up neti pot. I had a neighbor recommend eat love pray and I HATED it, and it was SO awkward. You know I want people to like me, but I can't LIE. . . . . so, very bad associations with that one!
      I missed it, what was your nond book that you just finished?

      Thanks, I'll watch for that. She almost always has trace ketones and when she's high she has them, I don't know if that means she is not getting enough food or enough insulin or both. Guess it's the next thing to learn.

      I'm such an incompetent, I just posted on my own page. . . ..

      Thanks, that's about where we are but not vomitting thank goodness. I have checked for ketones a few times, it's varying, have to remember to keep that in the equation, though I'll admit I don't understand that part very well.
      Aren't you happy you're a veteran and know so much.:rolleyes:

      Did that predate me? I missed it. Just saw lots of posts you did for others having problems where you reminded to think about absorption in the illness equation. I'm happy to learn from your misery. . . .:(
    13. Lisa P.
      Lisa P.
      Just realized from the other thread on illness and lows, I never had any clue that "absorption issues" could mess up ratios, etc. until I saw a couple references in your posts. She had I:C ratios that were nearly double her normal yesterday because of her antibiotic (I think) and I'd have been clueless and freaking out if I didn't know about this.

      He wanted the inns and outs of pumping lol! I wish I could speack dutch I'm pretty sure I'd be able to explain it all better to him(he has pretty good english). Thanks hun and I know who I confused you with now the mom from New Zealand with the little girl who has a cozmo and I think it's purple....Or maybe it's not.
      I am sick right now so I'm not quite sure of anything
    18. Mody_Jess_Pony
      Paula aren't you guys pumping(Don't tell me I'm mixing people up now) lol I recomend PMing him.He's being bombarded by teenage girls and even though his english is pretty great I think the ton of info coming at him is not helping. Have I even got you and Sybren in the semi-geographical location beligium and luxenbrough(I can't spell)....
