    Have you had MS? A lot of times ketones is caused by not eating enough, or being dehydrated, or losing weight and using your bodies fat stores. At this point it is fine, but you have to keep drinking lots of water to help flush all those out. GL!

    i would say you just make sure you drink lots of fluids, water, juice anything you can. you can have ketones due to being dehydrated. i had bad ms and was put on home iv where my urin was checked for ketones until i was hydrated again. good luck. its very important for your baby to be hydrated.

    I really wouldn't worry. I think the Internet is a dangerous thing. If you were meant to worry your gp would have made a fuss about it.
