    Could be early signs of kidney disease which can lead to kidney failure. See a doctor.  



    the proteins in urine are called Ketones. It happens when your body cells can't break down glucose ( sugar ) to use for energy.....so , it breaks down fat istead. If your ketones are too high, you  can get quite sick. That is called ketone acidosis. So, if your urine test strip shows  your ketone level is too high call your doctor !

    Right on mycatsmom, take it from a man who received a kidney transplant.
