The analysis of your blood tests depends on a variety of factors, these include: false positives, a trend in the results, the grouping of associated blood tests, and how your symptoms correspond with the symptoms that you are experiencing. You will need to discuss again the results of your blood tests with your general practitioner.
What we can say in general is that the following tests looks at some of the following issues.
White Blood Cell Count: this looks at the presence of an infection, allergy or bone marrow disorder, along with many other diseases and conditions.
Protein: this may help diagnose liver diseases, kidney diseases and many other diseases.
Ketones in urine: these are found due to fat metabolism. Ketones can be monitored for detecting insufficient insulin and therefore diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. Not eating enough calories or from vomiting due to illness.
