Ketonuria

Differential Diagnosis

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA)

Starvation

Suggested Additional Lab Testing

Anion gap is commonly measured in patients with DKA.

Management of DKA involves serial measurements of electrolytes, glucose, and blood gases in the acute setting to follow clinical progress.

Clinical Considerations

History of diabetes in a patient who presents with ketonuria and appropriate signs and symptoms is a strong indicator of DKA.
