Hi, Strange one for you. My son is 12 and has had diabetes for 5 years now. When he gets sick he will not drink or eat and we are in that situation now. He has been throwing up. I am trying to keep him drinking, he moans and groans and begs me to take him to the hospital. When this happens I have been onl the phone with the doctor trying to bring the ketones down and give him extra insulin. We need to be able to handle this at home as much as possible but he becomes almost beligerent and yelling at me. He complains about pain in arms and legs and stomach which I understand comes with ketones. The doctor feels that this is the way he handles pain. Anyone have any suggestions or run into the same issues. Thanks, Karen in Baltimore.
