Question from :

Can you tell me why my four year old daughter never has ketones when she is high?

Answer:

From: DTeam Staff

Ketone production is dependent upon insulin deficiency. It may be that your daughter’s high results are associated with diet and that she has sufficient levels of insulin to prevent ketone production.
