Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
My son was spilling ketones with an elevated blood sugar last night so we gave him water and extra insulin. Overnight he was low. Ketones returned this morning. Was this just due to dehydration? At what point do I call the doctor? I'm confused by the off and on ketones.
See the answer.
