Ketones and Type 1 Diabetes - What's Important About Them? My patients make me proud every day! Since 2010, I've worked as a Family Nurse Practitioner/Sub-Investigator for our research studies in Endocrinology. I am also certified as a Certified Diabetic Educator. Follow me on Pinterest and check out my website I recently started for my patients for more information on Diabetes/Prediabetes/Insulin Resistance/PCOS: www.whatdiabetes.com
Ford Motor Diabetes Technology "An app could accurately monitor the condition of diabetics and warn them, as well as health care providers, of a drop in blood sugar or the onset of insulin shock, improved driver safety and reduced insurance costs would result."
Animas sick day protocol - good device for remembering to check every 4 hours, up insulin if necessary, 10 carbs per hour to stay hydrated if appetite is poor (for our toddler's weight), and keep checking for ketones.
remember to pick up an extra calorie king book for the school to have on file, also give additional trusted references for carb counting help. We label ALL of the foods we send to school, but for those birthday celebrations, etc that I can't always be prepared for, references are good to have handy!
