I was always fond of Miss Marple, mystery writer Agatha Christie’s intuitive and no-nonsense sleuth. I loved the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys series when I was growing up. Where are they when we need them? Oh, right, they were fictional characters.

Ketosis Prone Diabetes, It's weird and, yes, some of us can go into remission

This blog is to bring together all the Ketosis Prone Diabetics and start a dialog. This is for you if you are not a type 1 but have had either a DKA episode or a dangerous hyperglycemic event.
