Patient : Two days ago, I starting have severe nausea, and vomiting. I decided to go to the ER; and my UA showed a high spec grav (greater than 1.030), and high ketone (greater than 160). The only medication I take is Mirapex for RLS. What is the likely explanation for the high ketone reading? dehydration or what?
