Hello my urine test found positive in ketone and bilirubin and also had 20mg ascorbic acid.Can i know what are the problem about this?
Not Necessarily Any: Ketones are a byproduct of burning fat, they are healthy ; not a problem if not very high. Bilirubin, a breakdown product of hemoglobin, mostly cleared by liver but some people do not clear as well ; some is cleared through kidneys; get liver function test results to help evaluate. Ascorbic acid is vitamin c, a water soluble vitamin, ; likely spilling into urine if you are taking lots of vitamin c. ...Read more

I'm 13 days post-op from sleeve gastrectomy. Have UTI symptoms. Urine test neg but ketone level was 15 & flagged with an A. Is this ketoacidosis?
Ketosis: Most likely this is ketosis, but not ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis occurs in people with type 1 diabetes and no insulin production. Ketosis occurs in all of us if we do not eat much, especially if we don't eat carbs. People on low carb diets have ketosis all the time. Talk to your doctor, as you need to get the UTI symptoms checked out anyway. ...Read more

For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

NOT a UTI so, what could urine test that contains Ketones 0.5 mmol/L, Erythrocytes 0.3mg/L & Leukocyte Esterase 75WBC/uL mean? No bacteria growing.
Does not add up:
All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, the results provided are not interpretable due to incorrect units.

Urine test doc called saying high amounts ketones in urine I have been exhausted and peeing a lot also thirsty and dizzy, 19 yrs could be diabetic?
What does the presence of ketones in urine mean!My friend is diabetic for years and is on medication.Checks his sugar at home with the machine.Help.
Could be DKA: Hi. Ketones in the urine of a diabetic could be diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Is your friend a type 1 or type 2 diabetic; either can get DKA, but type 1's more prone. This is likely if your friend is very sick. If so, he/she should contact his/her doc immediately or go to the ER. Ketones can be seen normally with fasting, so if your friend is NOT sick and is fasting, it's probably not a problem. ...Read more
