i had a urinalysis recently and ketones protein and blood appeared in my urine. the blood is not noticable to me whatsoever, they called it occult blood. i had eaten right before the test and drank a lot of water so im not sure the reason for the ketones/protein. i am not diabetic as far as i know and there was no evidence of glucose in the UA. i also have no symptoms of anything. i have had 2 previous uti's in the past, but i didnt know i had them until i had a UA drawn. however, i never had ketones show up in my urine before so that makes me nervous. help!
