To reduce your ketones drink some normal 7up and inject for it and also drink either 7up free or water (water makes my son sick if tummy upset so 7up free easier). Sometimes the ketones can hang ..cont

Contd.. Hang around from starvation so hospital told us to alternate between regular 7up and inject for it. See how this goes and check your ketone levels every two hours.

How long does someone usually get admitted for DKA?

It depends, sometimes you may only be at the hospital for 3 or 4 hours and sometimes you're in for a night.

Honey time admitted can't be a factor. Dka can be deadly. Please call 911
