Also had Ketones show up in urine reading 5. Have never had this before. Glucose was negative.
I am not panicking over these labs, just curious to know how many others are in the same boat in regards to your readings.

I've had all of these except the ketones and high monocytes.
Personally, I think it is due to Anaplasma coinfection, but I don't test positive.
My doctor ordered a Lymphocyte Subset test, and that was more revealing...showed low B-cells, low total T-cells, low CD4 T-cells, low CD8 T-cells, and low-normal NK (CD56) cells. But the CD4/CD8 ratio was really high. So for me, the low CD8 was the most significant issue... CD8 T-cells help to control inflammation, so with a low number of them, I am more prone to inflammation.
Low platelets can be caused by fatty acid deficiency, so make sure you are getting enough fats in your diet. Also, you might want to have a stool test to check for malabsorption of fats, because this not only affects fat absorption, but also absorption of fat-soluble vitamins such as Vitamin K, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, etc.
Ketones I think means you're burning protein for energy...are you on a low carb diet?
Sorry I don't have more info, just interesting that there's someone else out there with similar strange labs like me...
