    Thank you so much for the warnings on here. Started taking this 5 days ago, now in A&E being admitted with DKA. If I hadn't seen the warnings on here I wouldn't have known the warning signs. Thank you again

    Not only type 1 diabetics get DKA as type 2 Diabetics get it to and it is just a short stay in hospital and a few needle marks but you will be okay as they won't check your pee they check your blood as that is where the ketones are when they test for it
