    Hello. My 6 yo AS child has had a very bad acetone breath especially in the morning. I know it means something. Anyone deal with this issue. Should I get him tested for metals? What is the costs for this?

    Acetone breath is a sign of very low blood sugar. Your body is SUPPOSED to regulate itself better than this overnight.

    Yes, DO have him checked for diabetes: swings in blood sugar ARE one of the early signs.
