Does anyone know what causes excessive ketones to show up in the urine of a normally healthy person when blood sugar levels are normal and diabetes is ruled out? No dieting or medications/drugs are involved. Has anyone had this, and how were you tested and diagnosed?

  • Was that test done early in morning before you ate or are you eating very little ? This mean that your body is burning more fat than necessary. Usually something with people on low carb diet or diabetics not under control. You should be directed to an endocrinologist. Something is not right here.

  • The high results showed up even though eating was normal (not high protein) and when tested in the afternoon.
