Ketones in urine

Postby CamsMommy » Thu Apr 13, 2017 5:26 pm

Hi ladies. I am 31 weeks and 4 days prego. I had my appointment today and they found ketones in my urine. What does this mean? I should also add that I was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with gestational diabetes. I have been very good about tracking everything and exercising. I have in those 3 weeks lost 10 lbs. I am eating and fulfilled when I do eat. What am I doing wrong? I also should add that I was never sent to a dietician and I had to beg my OB for a glucose meter. I'm so exhausted dealing with everything and feel I'm not being helped my my OB.
Any info is appreciated.

Hi Nancy, not much info here. Maybe you can follow some diet to keep the calories in check.
