Not quiet sure, thought it was a sign for diabetes. .... when I was in my 1st trimester I developed them & my doc said I was pretty much starving. Because of  that, my body started to break down & feed off of itself to provide for the baby. Told me if I didn't stop losing weight it would harm the baby. Scared me so I started eating plenty & have been fine ever since.

If you are dehydrated you'll have ketones in your urine.
