...this is the first time I recall him having anything other then trace in 3.5 years. He woke up at 6am with a 368 Bg, he was upper 300's at 1:30am, only 1/2 corrected it due to a basketball and lacrosse practice last night (didn't correct the 300 Bg after lacrosse). Also had an expected pod change between practices (dog jumped on him and it tore off), so Bg's were wacky. Anyway, I didn't wake to the 3am alarm so no check (hate when I do that), check for ketones with that 368 Bg, didn't expect any, as I said before he RARELY gets them, 1.1 (crap). Gave a bolus via syringe, changed out pod thinking that was the culprit. Did have blood in cannula but I ran a bolus through it to see if was working and insulin came out. Gave breakfast when Bg was coming down 237, spiked back to 368 but cleared the ketones, at 10:30 he wanted to go to school, so off I took him. By 11:30 bg was at 191. When I picked him up at 3:15 bg was 56 (wth). Treated and gave a snack, basketball at 4:30 with a 110 bg. Bg after practice 80, snack, Bg 10 minutes later 56 (ugh). The poor kid is exhausted... Even another mom at practice noticed he looked awful. I know he should have skipped practice but since he wanted to go to school and made it through the day, he didn't want to miss practice. That's our rule, if you miss school then no practice. He just keeps going... Did I mention that diabetes sucks! Oh yeah, this post was about ketones.
