Today at my 2 year old DS's check-up we did a urine dip (he had cloudy urine on & off for 2 days) and found he had ketones in his urine (nothing else)<br><br>
This was done after he had eaten a fairly good breakfast & snack on the way there (b/c she wondered if he hadn't been eating well & that was causing it)<br><br>
My DH and one of his DS's first cousins has type 1 diabetes so I asked about that. She said it was unlikely due to the lack of glucose present, but said we could do a fasting blood draw to be sure.<br><br>
Does anyone have any experience with this that you could share?<br><br>
He certainly HaSN'T been showing the usual sign of diabetes, but he did drop down in the % for height/weight again, so it has me wondering....

My first thought was fasting but it sounds like it wasn't that...<br><br>
Good that she's checking diabetes. My son has high ketones because he has a metabolic condition but he was showing many other signs. High fat diet (not enough carbs for energy) can cause it too. I don't know of other causes but likely there are some.
