Very important

8. Why is it important to check ketone levels? (check all that apply)
High ketone levels mean not enough insulin is available.
Ketones have acid properties that can make a person very sick, causing a condition called ketoacidosis (diabetic coma).
You need to test for ketones if a child with Type 1 diabetes is sick (even vomiting once).
It is an important test if a child's blood sugar is high.
