Re: [IP] Re: ? ketones and pregnancy



Last night I found that I had a large amount of ketones in my urine, despite
my sugar being absolutley on target.

I called the endo on call at the hospital, who said not to worry about it,
and made me feel a little silly.  I have been conditioned as a diabetic to
ALWAYS worry about keytones.  Do you think I could be pregnant?
