Hi She definitely has an infection and she needs a stool sample for culture and a urine culture. She sounds very dehydrated and she needs intravenous fluids for rehydration. She will need appropriate antibiotics depending on the culture results. She sounds very seriously ill and her doctors need to treat her with fluids and antibiotics just as soon as possible.

This is Dr. David

 

I am another expert here.

with ketones in the urine and wanting to drink all the time and pee all the time, she could have diabetes.

I know she has had her sugars checked, but she needs a glucose challenge test and a hemoglobin a1c level to check for diabetes or prediabetes.

she could also have a fungal thrush infection in her mouth. does she have a white coating on her tongue?

 

fur feeling on the tongue could be from acid reflux up her throat or bacterial infection of her mouth , sometimes from gingivitis.

she could also have an autoimmune disorder as well

her thyroid hormone levels need to be checked as well

have all of these been checked?

Hi. I'm the first expert that responded to you. Diabetes alone would not explain all of this and there's every indication this is an infection. The other possible diagnoses that Dr David mentioned are not important for right now--she needs IV fluids and antibiotics and then the diabetes and other questions can be evaluated
