    Diabetic Ketoacidosis and Urine

    If your body is able to eliminate excess ketones from its system by peeing them out, then how do people have such high ketone levels, such that would cause ketoacidosis.

  • Talking Constant Glucose Monitors

    Do talking constant glucose monitors exist? I'm asking on behalf of my amazing father who manages his diabetes while being completely blind! Thanks to a talking glucose monitor, which he uses four times a day, he is able to keep track of his glucose readings. However, what we have heard about constant glucose monitors sounds great!
