My oldest was diagnosed at age 7 (now 9). When we found out, she had the usual symptoms of thirst, bed wedding, weight loss. My youngest (6) has been complaining of stomach pain, and for the last three days has been throwing up. No fever, no other symptoms. Last time she was throwing up at 3 a.m., tested her urine with the ketone strips... extremely high. I then tested her BG with her sister's meter, 82. I have been tested her BG periodically the last few days, never been over 85. My question is, for a non diabetic why is her ketones high?? Anyone have any experiences or wisdom to share? I'm taking her in to the doctor today. I thought it was just a stomach bug at school, but going on the third day now seems a bit long.
