Urine studies: These do not indicate disease. All of us have a little protein, bilirubin, and urobilogen in our urine. These amounts are very little. Ketones indicate fasting or alcohol without eating or diabetes out of control. Ketones are not usual, but if fasting, then are good. Were you fasting?
