Since we purchased a new fancy digital ketone meter for school, this morning after breakfast, Liam surged to over 300 (332 to be exact). I figured it would be an awesome time to check it out and see just how many ketones he has in his body when his sugars are this high. To my surprise (and to my relief), he only registered 0.1 on the meter while he was 332. The meter indicated being under .6 is ideal - anything over .6 basically, you’ve got ketones.
So, anyway, thought I’d post since this was our first ketone check in years and it was a relief to see no ketones with his BG this high. I’m sure this isn’t to say that EVERY TIME he’s over 300 he’ll have no ketones, but this check showed none so it made for a happy Papa.
