My daughter is type 1 diabetic, who is generally well controlled. however she has high ketones , and hs been a little sick today.. she is 17, and has had ketonacidos..4 years ago... . we have done corrective fast action nova rapid.. should we check again in 2 hours and do corrective agin???? she doesnt want to eat, and says her fingers are tingling what is your advice please...
I would advise you to head to hospital right now. And get urgent treatment for your daughter, as high ketones could be preceding another episode of ketoacidosis which is life-threatening. So please dont wait and hurry to nearest known hospital where she can be quickly evaluated and started on treatment.All the best.
As u said ketones in her urine, what is her blood sugar? and she is looking sick and not want to eat, all this thing indicate that she need hospililization and she need IV fliuds and insulin , so consult ur doctor immediatly
