Amala .T | Fathima Yoonus

Abstract: Ketone bodies are also known as ketones. They are the normal product of fat metabolism. Ketones are normally not detectable in blood or urine. Ketone bodies should be test routinely in any urine that is positive for glucose because they appear in urine of diabetics. Normal pregnant women has an increased rate of glucose utilisation and excretion which lead to the faster rate of reduction for blood glucose.30 urine samples of pregnant women in first trimester were selected and analysed for acetone. Higher rate of ketone body metabolism was found in pregnant women with GDM than those without GDM.
