Difficulty in urination can be because of stricture of the urethra
. I would advice you not to ignore the problem and consult your doctor ASAP. Problems with urination can cause fluctuation of sugars and yes in a way they are interrelated.
I would also advice you to get done a serum creatinine
to check the kidney status..
I would like to know what were his sugars when the ketone was found in the urine. If the ketone was present with low blood sugar
it suggests a starvation
state and if it was with high sugars it suggests a diabetic ketoacidosis
, in either case we do have to keep a close watch on your child.
I would suggest you to get a blood ketone levels done to get an unbiased picture of the ketone status. Please do blood sugar monitoring atleast 6 times a day during this period. Keep him well hydrated and feed him properly.
All in all dont ignore this issue, please consult a nearby doctor ASAP
