In brief: Urine findings

Ketones, in the absence of glucose, in a urine analysis are an indication of starvation and are nothing to worry about.
Blood in the urine (b) can be due to various factors. Among them are, a uti, kidney stone, bladder or kidney cancer and glomerulonephritis, among others. If the b in the urine persists and is not due to a uti, see a urologist for its diagnosis.
