So this morning my set change kinked and threw me into the high 200's. I changed the site again and took some insulin. I've never had a problem with ketones, in the last 6 years, I've only had one positive test and it fell into "trace" amount. I use ketostix. Anyway, I'm feeling super nauseated and tested for ketones. It tells me I'm "moderate" at 40mg/dl. I've never had this many.
I've been sipping water, but I'm not sure how much longer I'll be able to keep it down. All I can think about right now is throwing up. My last test didn't show much improvement in BG (at 290) so I just took another shot.
My question is; when is it time to worry? Is a "moderate" ketone reading something I should be handling on my own? when is it time to call on help?
I've been fighting to keep my water down for fear of becoming dehydrated, but I really, really just want to go ralph.
Does anyone have any suggestions or words of encouragement? Thanks in advance, I'm really glad I have all of you to rely on for help.
