Abstract: Our aim of current study was to explore the relation between ketone in urine and cheek dimples. The test used to check the levels of urine ketone levels. Glucose id mostly used for the purpose to get energy. If blood glucose is not have in enough quantity than body starts burning fats to get energy. As the result of this ketones are produced which appear in your blood and urine. Ketone high levels cause ketoacidosis and many polygenic diseases that may cause coma or death. Basically there are 2 kinds of dimples cheek and chin dimples. Dimples are literally deformation of skin muscles. Deformation in double zygomatic muscle of face ends up in the formation of cheek dimples. It seems as a hollow space on cheeks after we smile or build some facial expressions. Total 100 subjects participated throughout this activity which they were students at Institute of life science and Biotechnology Bahauddin Zakariya University, Multan, Pakistan. There is no significant relation among urine ketone level and dimples on cheek because percentage of negative urine ketone level is higher than positive but we can say that those people having negative ketone level in urine have a greater chance of having dimples.
