But when the body can't use glucose for energy, it uses fat instead. When <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/fat-calories.html/">fats</a> are broken down for energy, chemicals called ketones appear in the <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/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> CetonasLa glucosa (un tipo de azĂșcar) es la principal fuente de energĂ­a del cuerpo.https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/es/teens/ketones-esp.html/27710e5d-4915-4474-81ed-04d9b2cfe730kh:age-teenThirteenToNineteenkh:age-youngAdultEighteenPluskh:clinicalDesignation-endocrinologykh:genre-dictionarykh:primaryClinicalDesignation-endocrinologyWords to Know for Teens With Diabeteshttps://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/diabetes-center/words-to-know/5fc89723-9cf2-4948-bfc0-c83f09781597
