    Went to take a piss test for some meds the other day, and apparently my urine-ketone levels are in the high range. I'm not doing low carb dieting or anything, and while I intake a good amount of protein, its probably still around 1g/lb. I'm hoping that this is just because when I took the test (in the morning) I didnt have much water in me, so it wasnt too good of a sample. Does anyone have experience with this or know more about it?

    Pissing ketones on a non low-carb diet is a sign of diabetes. Did they check your blood sugar?

    thats what I'm wondering, I've been on a slight deficit lately, and it definetely looks like I've lost some fat. Do you have any links to information on this? my mom is a nurse and is all freaking out, telling me to stop taking protein shakes :ugh:

    If he has a good amount of carbs in his system he will not be breaking fat into ketone bodies in a high enough degree for them to be found in his urine. However, if by taking in a good amount of carbs he means like 20g a day, then that is a different story.

    No, I mean like a normal non-low carb diet amount of carbs, probably like 250g, I dont know. Also, do you guys know anything about urine testing? I did this right in the morning, and I think this urine was a continuance of the urine stored up overnight, I didnt have that great of a stream going, and had just captured a tiny little bit in the container :dunno:

    I know, thats why I thought it was stupid. I guess I need to read into protein digestion/kidneys etc more, since I really doubt I have diabetes or anything.

    thanks...I think some of this might have to do with morning dehydration

    the upside is that my cholesterol and triglyceride levels are awesome :hs:

    yeah if I get those strips I'll probably test in the morning like what I had to do originally (12 hr fast), but I'll make sure I have enough water in me

    I had also gone jogging the night before the urine test, if that matters (had my last meal after the jog)
