But when the body can't use glucose for energy, it uses fat instead. When <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/fat.html/">fats</a> are broken down for energy, chemicals called ketones appear in the <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/blood.html/">blood</a> and urine. This can occur when not enough food has been eaten to provide glucose for energy, or it can occur in diabetes, when the body can't use glucose normally.</p> CetonasCuando se descomponen las grasas para generar energía, aparecen unos elementos químicos denominados “cetonas” en la sangre y la orina.https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/es/parents/ketones-esp.html/c4a57e99-79a3-4746-8c67-5e7365e58ce6kh:age-allAgesOrAgeAgnostickh:clinicalDesignation-endocrinologykh:genre-dictionarykh:primaryClinicalDesignation-endocrinologyDiabetes Words to Knowhttps://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/diabetes-center/words-know/63862b1e-76bb-4a56-9adf-0691e78f1ec8
