I just had a urinalysis and a preliminary report indicated that I had ketones and protien and some blood in the urine.  I am a type 2 diabetic and ny BSis generally running a little high.  aI don;t think that there is much liklihood of diabetic ketonosis, and I am getting sufficient carbs.  Any ideas?

What does your doctor say?  He/she should tell you what the results mean.  How high is the amount of protein and blood in the urine?  Ketones in the urine usually mean that your body is metabolizing fat which is what happens on low carb diets as the person loses weight,  but it can also happen in uncontrolled diabetes, so you need to ask your doctor.  Most lab reports also have parameters with the chemistry profiles that give you the norms.

Thanks Lanie.
  I have an appointment with my Doctor Friday.  As I said these were just preliminary results phoned to me by my Home Health Nurse.  I have hadf a rather constant bladder infection from a supra pubic catheter, I kind of suspected that that might be the cause, but I didn' know.

That could have something to do with the test results.  Good luck.
