In what types of situations should I check my urine or blood for ketones?

Perform a ketone test if your blood glucose level is above 240 mg/dl, your insulin pump malfunctions and causes an interruption in insulin delivery, if you feel ill, if you experience traumatic stress, or if you have any symptoms of ketoacidosis such as increased urination, stomachache, or dry mouth.
