Diabetes Awareness Month Day 22

“Ketones don’t only develop with high blood sugars, they can also develop with lows, such as with the stomach flu. Check ketones anytime a child vomits.”

Every day during Diabetes Awareness Month, I will share a fact, tip, or thought on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.

I hadn’t known that ketones develop with *lows*, though I had heard to check if someone is vomiting or sick. I’d just thought people tended to run high when sick. (No direct experience, thank goodness… more T1/T2 differences…)
