Urine results: Leukocytes/white blood cells indicate that inflammatory/infectious process is occurring, especially if rbcs are not present to support the idea of whole blood in the urine. Ketones are breakdown products of fats/fatty acids & seen in fasting or starvation. Lab findings must be taken in a clinical context; we would need to know what symptoms, issues, or other info available if any to help evaluate.

Leukocytes = WBCs: White blood cells in the urine indicate that an inflammatory or immune system reaction is taking place. Normally there should be none or a very tiny amount. This finding needs to be looked at with other lab findings and clinical context such as symptoms, physical exam and so on. Please see your doctor for more info.
