where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Checked BS 3 times, both read over 600. Mom won't take me to hospital because they aren't experience with DKA. I have almost all the signs of DKA expect large ketones and vomiting. Only small ketones and a stomach ache.What do I do? I would feel safer at a hospital but mom won't take me!Please Help!

You need to call 911. DKA is nothing to play with. I've been in ICU several times from it.

I'd call the emergency services if I was you, you don't want to get into a state that can't be reversed!
