what could possibly cause the above? My doctor recommends for ultrasound exam

Almost normal urine: Must be other reasons for the ultrasound recommendation. The urine results aren't very abnormal. It could result from mild dehydration overnight and fasting. Small bilirubin can be a false positive. What kind of ultrasound? Bladder residual volume? R/O renal artery stenosis? Kidney? ...Read more

Urine (Definition)

The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more

Second opinion?: With weight loss and nausea, I'd recommend a second evaluation. Perhaps you need an ultrasound or CT scan to look at your stomach. Ketones and bilirubin can appear wtih dehydration, so make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids. ...Read more

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!.

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? ...Read more

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

Urine sample (with stringy floating white pieces) has TRACE bacteria and MODERATE leukocytes. No blood, nitrites, ketones, bilirubin. Diagnosis?

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. Repeat urinalysis for protein presence may be recommended at this time. ...Read more

Bilirubin (Definition)

Bilirubin is the potentially toxic product of heme metabolism. It is formed by breakdown of heme present in hemoglobin, myoglobin, cytochromes, catalase, peroxidase and tryptophan pyrrolase. Eighty percent of the daily bilirubin production comes from hemoglobin. It requires conversion to a water-soluble form before elimination from the body by ...Read more
