Ketone in urine is suggestive of starvation. Maintain proper hydration. Treatment should be given to stop vomiting. Diabetes in pregnancy should be treated with insulin. Monitor her sugar before each insulin dose. Consult diabetologist for expert opinion. Advise : Ultrasound for status of pregnancy.
She needs to be on insulin for blood sugar control..iv hydration has to be given along with monitoring of electrolytes for persistent vomiting. She needs to be under supervision of endocrinologist. It is important to look for hidden focus of infection like UTI which can aggrevate symptoms
Hi, as the sugars r high, it should be controlled. Sugars also harm the Pregnancy, so please take advise from diabetic dr (endocrinologist) and sugar monitoring to be done fasting and after each meals till it controlled.
