Urine analysis - detected (trace) ketones and bilirubin (detected trace) means what?

Nothing: Especially if you're hungry, you can have +1 ketones and it's normal. You say you have cirrhosis and it is no surprise if you've got a bit of extra conjugated bilirubin in your blood spilling into your urine. I hope the cirrhosis can be addressed; if it's hepatitis C, perhaps you can get a cure with today's meds; if alcohol, perhaps abstinence can reverse it. Be strong & stay proactive. ...Read more

I have protein (0.15 g/L), ketones (0.5 mmol/L), urobili (3.5 umol/L) and bilirubin (17 umol/L) in my urine. Should I be worried? Please help! .

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

Urine sample showed Ketone and Bilirubin (17mmol+), should I seek fast investigation or wait GP (back in 2 weeks) Blood tests are OK, No health issues?

Relax: Miss a meal and you'll often get a few ketones. If you're not jaundiced, the bilirubin is probably a false alarm. If you're taking "herbal medicines" that are often not what they are supposed to be and can cause cholestasis, consider stopping. Otherwise be thankful for good health. ...Read more

That is probably a: Normal looking urine, with some asymptomatic bacteriuria (presence of bacteria without causing infection). The long stringy white stuff is protein or casts that have polymerized in the urine. If you have symptoms of UTI, then you can be treated, but if not then you do not need immediate treatment.
