Could I have type 1 diabetes? I am 15, and female. Recently I have been urinating about every half an hour. This is wierd, I know, but I smelled my urine because I heard that diabetes can make your urine smell sweet , and my urine smells extremely sweet y

You are correct that celiac, Type 1 diabetes and hypothyroidism (Hashimoto's disease) are all autoimmune. The test for diabetes, a blood glucose should have been done with your recent labs. If you urinate more with uncontrolled diabetes you will also drink more. Something else may be going on explaining your urinary frequency. I would expect you to have need to urinate at night also. Check on your last labs, what was your glucose? The ketones could be explained by reduced calorie intake. Correct again!They should have seen glucose in your urine if your sugar was above 180 then too. All the best and good luck on that gluten free diet.

New changes like foul smell to urine and darker cloudy color could be due to a bladder infection or because of something you ate/or drank. If you also have symptoms like needing to urinate more often or burning discomfort when you urinate, an infection is likely. See a doctor please.

Bad odor and discharge can be symptoms of an infection. It is best to have these symptoms checked out to make sure you don't need some sort of medication/antibiotic.
