This month, we’d like to explore everyone’s favorite topic: KETONE TESTING.
For people who produce little or no insulin on their own, ketone checks are helpful for pinpointing the cause of elevated glucose levels (infection, spoiled insulin, pump malfunction, etc…). What is your approach to ketone testing?
A. Ketones? Never heard of ‘em
B. I’m aware of ketones, but never test for them
C. I check for ketones only when instructed to do so by my healthcare team
D. I check for ketones any time my glucose is very high
E. I check for ketones only with “unexplained” high readings
