Hey all, my sweet boy Fat Tony just got back from the ER today where he was hospitalized for 4 days with DKA for the first time. It was touch and go there and I was a complete wreck but he's recovered now and eating and drinking like a champ. But his PM reading was 412 so I’m pretty worried. He was diagnosed with pancreatitis last week and diabetes in April. His BGs have been up and down all along — right now he’s on 1.5U of Lantis. He’s been on Lantis 1U, 1.5U, or 2U the whole time and still hasn’t stabilized. Readings attached: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12DDSSHAoGFPnD8gRNOIwrqw24d9iaSCbfKOrTwlijTE/edit (I just made this spreadsheet, going to convert to the templates format y’all use soon) We may not be able to afford to hospitalize him again. I know it's a rough situation, but I'm not giving up on him. *I'd like to start monitoring his ketones with a blood ketone meter. Does anyone have any recommendations for one? *And any recommendations on what to do at the very first sign of ketones in the blood (vs full blown DKA)? *any recs for things that might help stabilize him? I've read through some recommendations here in the group for pancreatitis but would love any tips you have for a very good boy who may be prone to dka, has pancreatitis, and whose BG is tricky to stabilize. I really want to give it my all for him so he has a fighting chance!
