This is a really silly question, and I'm not sure how to word it. Have been Type 2 diagnosed from April 2011. Sometimes my poo smells like perming lotion????? I have googles this and found reference to this being a sign of ketones????? Can anybody clarify this for me please? I found out I was Diabetic on 4th April 2011 and on &th was rushed into hospital. On the 4th I had ketones ++ in my urine. The doctors dont know whether I was rushed in due to my sugar level being 25 or a reaction to being put on Metformin. I personally think it was the ketones as my sypmtoms from that night are more like ketoacidosis than a hyper. Somewhat confused by this all and am worried that the ketones are back and obviously dont want to be a plank by asking the doctors this daft question. Sorry for the long winded nature :?
