Why is Ketone Monitoring important?
- Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) is a life-threatening metabolic complication of diabetes with a mortality rate of 2%-10%
- DKA is the leading cause of hospitalization, morbidity, and death in children with type 1 diabetes
- The use of a blood test for early detection of increased blood ketone levels can help to avert DKA
- According to the ADA, blood ketone testing should be performed on sick days and whenever glucose is greater than 250-300 mg/dL.
