Dear patient,

I would advise you to head to hospital right now. And get urgent treatment for your daughter, as high ketones could be preceding another episode of ketoacidosis which is life-threatening. So please dont wait and hurry to nearest known hospital where she can be quickly evaluated and started on treatment.All the best.
warm wishes
