where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Checked BS 3 times, all over 600. Won't register on meter. Have almost all the signs of DKA but mom won't take me to hospital because they aren't experienced with DKA and we would just waste our money. We can't go to another hospital because we dot have insurance there. Please help! I feel horrible!

Did you take insulin in a syringe?

Nope, a pen. I even took more insulin because I've been sick and it hasn't gone down! Been above 300 for 3 days!

Maybe the insulin in the pen is bad. How long has it been opened?

Just opened, and I've used several different pens. I've just been sick
