what could small amounts of leukocytes, ketones, and protein in urine indicate?

Urine analysis: Your leukocytes can indicate a urinary tract infection (uti), your ketones, with no glucose, indicate that you are not ingesting carbohydrates and your protein could indicate the presence of a UTI or proteinuria. Get your physician culture your urine, if it has leucocytes and if it is positive, get start on antibiotics. If you have no uti, get a 24 hour urine for protein to quantify it in it.
