Hi My 14 month old baby had Rotavirus in March, and has not eaten properly since. He will not touch normal food, or even lumpy baby food. He will occasionally eat 7 month old textured food, rice pudding (smooth), and yoghurt. He s gone off his milk totally. The only reason he s been putting a little weight on is because I ve been adding double cream to his milk and foods - I was told by all the GP s and Health Visitors this was the right thing to do, but the GP I saw today said it was bad! Without me adding the double cream, he d only have been having around 300 cals per day, so would have been losing weight, but the GP I saw today just would not listen to me! He s had a strange smelling breath for weeks now, and I took him to the Doctors today. He has ketones in his urine. So, what I suspected seems to be true - he s in ketosis! Of course I am now worried sick as I know that in a state of ketosis, the body uses fat stores, but also muscle, to survive. given his heart is a muscle, I am so worried - the GP I saw today did NOTHING to make me feel any better - just said to have him weighed and take it from there - that s all I ever hear from them even though my baby hasn t eaten properly for nearly 4 months! He s eating much less now than when he was 6 months old! I am at my wits end - I do not know what to do. I no longer trust my GP, and as my baby seems to be in a state of ketosis, which I know curbs the appetite, not to mention the fact it can be dangerous as it eats away at muscle, I just don t know what to do! Please help me, this is now making me ill!

My son is 4 1/2 and is ill right now with fever of 101F. He had vomitting earlier and diarhea all day. He is also under investigation right know at the children s hospital for a rare genetic metabolic disorder called SCOT deficiency. He does have ketones in his blood right now (0.3ml/moll) which is not that elevated, but he s done this before and I know they will climb quickly in the night because of his fever to close to 6.0 ml/mol. No doctor has given be clear cut anwser as to when I should be my son in to treat the ketosis. And when he s sick like this with, what we think is a stomac bug, he s very lethargic and generally isn t well. What is your suggestion when it comes to a cut off for ketone levels to seek medical attention? Thanks

I am on a ketogenic diet and have been in Ketosis for several weeks. I got an upper respiratory/sinus infection and felt like crud and had a fruit smoothie last night for dinner and again for lunch today. Went to doc today and got a corticosteroid shot, amoxicillin and bromphenir-pseudoephed-dm. Just checked my ketone level and I m still deep in ketosis. Is this because of one of the meds I m taking or is it possible that I could actually consume fruit smoothies and stay in ketosis?
