question about ketones

My blood sugar has been normal 82 but I have very large ketones and I don’t feel very great either I’m not sure what this means

@Redrose13 hi Joanna welcome to type One Nation.

Ketones are present whenever you are metabolizing fat.

With normal blood sugar, if you have eaten less carbohydrates than your body requires, your body will metabolize fats to make up the difference.

With normal blood sugar, if you are trying to lose weight then you will have large ketones whenever you have not eaten enough to cover your body’s energy requirements.

If you are not trying to lose weight, this is a sign you need to increase calorie and carb intake. You will also tend to need more insulin.

If you are not trying to lose weight… then what you are feeling is hunger. You need to take on more calories/ carbs: you are (your body is) hungry.

Hope this helps you.
