I changed my site and had a tomato and mozzarella salad with some italian bread croutons for dinner because I didn’t want to eat anything heavy until me blood sugars evened out.
The numbers that followed were 239 at 8:45 and and 250 at 10 pm, which is when I changed out my site AGAIN.
So it turns out my 3 hour infusion site was not only clogged, it was a bleeder to boot!
And on a whim I decided to check for ketones - And it was a damn good thing I did because I was spilling moderate ketones even though I felt just fine.
I can't tell you how many times in the past I've checked for ketones when my numbers were well into the 300s and sans ketones.
Diabetes is such a tricky bitch sometimes!
This morning I didn’t skip a beat even though I woke up with a 220 and was still running moderate ketones. Breakfast was coffee with cream and sugar and copious amounts of water.
I’m doing the work thing, I feel great and my ketones are running somewhere between small & trace amounts.
As much as all of the above being a metaphoric pain in the ass,(and it was) it was also a really great reminder to me that ketones happen, even when your not feeling the symptoms - And I’m grateful that I had the means to test for and keep an eye on them.
So have you ever checked for ketones and been surprised by the results?
