Ketones In Urine: Facts You Need To Know

In healthy individuals, carbohydrates are the body’s main energy source. When the body is unable to use carb sources like glucose, it breaks down fat for energy—this commonly occurs when there is not enough insulin to use glucose for energy. When there is too little insulin, ketones will likely show up in the blood or urine. Ketones are the chemical byproduct produced when the body burns fat for fuel. Ketonuria is the medical condition when ketones in urine are present. High ketone levels, in combination with high blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia), can lead to a dangerously toxic body and the condition known as diabetic ketoacidosis.

What Is Ketoacidosis and Ketonuria? Ketoacidosis or ketonuria can occur when a type 1 diabetic doesn’t take their insulin. It also occurs when insulin-dependent diabetics fail to meet the higher insulin demands from stress, injuries, or an illness. Ketoa Continue reading >>

    Got a quick call today from my doctor since I had a routine physical and got bloodwork and urine tests done.
    He said everything was normal except for really low vitamin D levels and oddly enough, ketones in my urine. He explained that typically it's a sign of uncontrolled diabetes but my blood sugar is fine. He ordered an a1c done at the time that I got all of my bloodwork done just to be thorough. I don't have the results in front of me but I could request a hard copy of them. Anyway, he assured me that I'm not diabetic.
    I'm a 20 y/o college student.
    Is ketones in the urine a precursor to diabetes? I did read that fasting or starvation can lead to temporary high ketone levels. As a full-time college student, let's just say that my sleeping schedule is rather...irregular. I had to fast for the blood test that morning so my last meal was dinner that evening. I didn't sleep until 7 am that morning and my appointment was at 9 am, so...yeah...
    The doctor said the next step would be a 24 hr urine test since they double-checked my results to make sure I actually had ketones in my urine and I did. But he also said there's no rush at all. I can't get the test till I'm actually back home so I'm just wondering now what it could be

    Did you know the volume of ketones in your urine? Was it slight or high?
    Slight to moderate ketones can occur with exercise. Did you work out or do some strenuous physical activity before your appointment?
    People on low carbohydrate diets go into ketosis (usually preferably). These are things to consider if your testing does rule out Diabetes.
    Plus, this was a one time test. Without other symptoms or clinical presentations to preclude a diagnosis, it may be easier to simply repeat a urine sample next time, too. Shouldn't need to be a fasting sample, either.

    Most likely caused by dehydration. Young people often do not get enough to drink. I would just make sure you have lots of water before your next test. You said you had been fasting since supper the night before? If you were a bit dry then and didn't drink anything, you could very easily have been dehydrated.

Ketone Levels In Urine-blood;symptoms & Management

Ketone: The human body essentially runs on glucose, If your body is low on glucose, your body starts breaking down fats for energy. Ketones (chemically recognized as ketone bodies) are by-products of the breakdown of fatty acids.This really happen if you have diabetes and don’t have enough insulin to help your cells absorb the glucose.It also happens when you take low carbs diet, known as the ketogenic diet. The breakdown of fat for fuel and the production of ketones is a normal process for everyone. In a person without diabetes, glucagon, insulin, and other hormones limit ketone levels in the blood from becoming too high. Though, people with diabetes are at chance for ketone buildup in their blood. If left untreated, people with type 1 diabetes are a chance for a condition known as diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). It’s also possible for people with type 2 diabetes to experience DKA in certain situations as well. Type 2 Diabetes: Type 2 Diabetes is a long-term metabolic dysfunction that is described by high blood sugar, insulin resistance, and comparative lack of insulin. Type 2 diabetes most frequently develops in people over age 45, but children, teens, and young adults are also Continue reading >>

    Ketones and Unrinary Tract Infection

    Is it normal when you have a high level of ketone's in your system to get a urinary tract infection? I'm kinda wondering about it, since my doctor doesn't listen to me when I say I have ketone's and he gives me antibiotics for a urinary tract infection. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  2. MarkM

    Infections are not caused by ketones. But they are encouraged by the high blood sugar that often accompanies ketones. Bacteria love warm moist places where there are lots of nutrients. If you lower your blood sugar to the point there is no longer sugar in your urine, you will be removing one of the key attractions. And hopefully you won't get so many infections. But until this happens, you are going to have to use antibiotics ... .

    I already commented on your blog this morning regarding ketones, as an individual who has had many UTI's, women know when they have an infection, as its not possible to urinate without that burning sensation, which we do not tolerate very well and will send you immediately to your doctor for medication to resolve a UTI, you made no mention as to whether you did in fact give your doctor a urine specimen.
