This is Dr. David
just high specific gravity does not mean ketoacidosis.
what does it mean
high specific gravity means the urine was concentrated
you were not drinking enough water during the day
I have been drinking water ?
then that is fine then
the specific gravity of the urine should be better on the next examination.
and if it is not ?
then you might need some blood work to check on your kidney function.

I would talk to your doctor about blood testing to check your BUN and creatine levels to make sure those are normal.
these are blood test to check on your kidney function.
