When you are sick and have diabetes, your body can make hormones that break down fat for energy. This can make ketones. Ketones raise the acid levels in your blood. This can cause you to get very sick with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Usually when you have ketones, your blood glucose is high. You may also have ketones when your blood glucose is not high. DKA can happen in a person with diabetes who is sick or does not take enough insulin. It is important to check both your glucose and your keto…

Abstract
When you are sick and have diabetes, your body can make hormones that break down fat for energy. This can make ketones. Ketones raise the acid levels in your blood. This can cause you to get very sick with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Usually when you have ketones, your blood glucose is high. You may also have ketones when your blood glucose is not high. DKA can happen in a person with diabetes who is sick or does not take enough insulin. It is important to check both your glucose and your ketones when you are sick. If you catch DKA early, you may be able to treat it successfully at home. DKA can become severe (very bad) or even life-threatening. If this happens, go to the Emergency Department right away. This pamphlet gives tips on how to check for ketones, what to do if you are sick, getting enough fluids, and preventing hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Insulin adjustment guidelines for sick days, and when to go to the nearest Emergency Department are included.
