The Importance of Screening for Glucose and Ketones in Urine.
When there is too much sugar (glucose) or ketones (products that result when fat breaks down in the body) in the blood, it spills over into the urine. Fasting, starvation diets, or diabetes may cause ketones in the urine. Ketones and glucose in the urine are not normal and could be a sign of illness, stress, or poor diabetes control. The presence of ketones or glucose in the urine may mean you need medical attention.
