Ketones are a reality that all children and teens living with diabetes need to face, hopefully not too oftenketone_pic

The number one reason ketones occur is due to a lack of insulin. This may be due to a number of reasons:

  • Did you skip your injection?
  • Could your insulin pen have been in the sun or gotten too cold?
  • Are there bubbles in your insulin pen meaning that you injected air instead of insulin?
  • Are you using the same injection site too often so that the insulin was not absorbed?
  • For pump users: could your cannula site be blocked?
  • Or perhaps are you sick?

But don’t panic, ketones can often easily be treated at home
