Hello and welcome to Health Care Magic,
All the parameters are normal in the child's urine analysis except for the positive ketone bodies
Normally no ketone bodies are present in urine.
Its presence occurs in one of the following conditions:
1. Diabetes mellitus
, fasting, stress states
4. Renal glycosuria
Ensure that the child was not fasting before the test.
A fasting blood glucose
level needs to be done to rule out diabetes mellitus which can occur in young children (Type 1 diabetes
In case it turns out to be negative other causes e.g. glycogen storage disease needs to be ruled out.
Consult your physician for further tests and management.
Thanks and take care
Dr Shailja P Wahal
