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!

Hi. I was recently diagnosed with type 1. I'm in the hospital now because my blood sugar hit extremely high levels.I'm freaking out a bit because I hate needles.if anyone has any ideas, let me know!!!
I currently ran out of ketone strips and can not get to any at the moment. Can I just use my actual blood sugar meter and just dip a strip into (tmi) urine? Need advice here! I'm high and feel sick!
Has anyone else noticed that your blood sugar goes up while you are sleeping. I will often go to sleep with my blood sugar in the 80s and wake up in the high 100s to low 200s
Anyone have a new Medtronic insulin pump 723 they'd be interested in selling? Insurance won't pay until next year and we really need one before then.

I'm considering an insulin pump Bc I've heard they are getting to be a lot easier to use. Does anyone have any recommendations? Has anyone tried the Snap?
