Question:

From Dumont, New Jersey, USA:

I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes 30 weeks into my pregnancy, and I am taking insulin. Between the carbohydrate restricted diet and insulin, my glucose levels are generally okay, yet I'm still spilling small-moderate amounts of ketones all day. Why?

Answer:

You may not have enough calories in your diet, and therefore are burning some fat. This should not be problem for the baby, but you may want to talk with your dietitian about altering your diet a little.
