Study Description
Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to investigate individuals with type 1 diabetes who were disconnected from their insulin pump and insulin therapy was started again after positive ketones (U) in the urine or blood β-hydroxybutyrate.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Type 1 Diabetes Behavioral: Different insulin therapy at different time points

Detailed Description:
Individuals with type 1 diabetes were disconnected from their insulin pump and insulin therapy was started again after positive ketones (U) in the urine or blood β-hydroxybutyrate with different therapy regimens after positive blood ketones.
