Question:

From California, USA:

My 16 year old daughter has been having high ketones for the past couple of days, and she has missed her period. Could the high ketones affect her period?

Answer:

Any metabolic abnormalities can interfere with normal menstruation. The question is why is she showing ketones for such a long period of time? Illness? Omitted insulin? If you do not know the answer to this question, you should contact her diabetes team immediately.

[Editor's comment: I would also consider having a pregnancy test done. SS]
