Education needed for ketone testing in type 1 diabetes
January 23, 2017

Ketone self-monitoring rates were high among very young children, whereas older adults infrequently checked their ketones, even when blood glucose was high, according to findings published in Diabetes Care.

Anastasia Albanese-O’Neill, PhD, ARNP, CDE, assistant professor in the College of Nursing at the University of Florida Health, and colleagues evaluated data from the T1D Exchange Clinic Registry on 2,995 children aged 4 to 12 years and adults aged 18 to 89 years (mean age, 27 years) with type 1 diabetes (mean duration, 18 years) to determine ketone-monitoring behaviors.
