Ketones in the urine aren't bad necessarily. They just mean that your liver is breaking down fatty acids to turn into energy (ketone bodies), the process known as ketosis. Diabetic ketoacidosis is completely different.

If your blood sugar is normal and you produce a sufficient amount of insulin, then you don't need to worry about ketones in your urine brought on by a low-carbohydrate diet. Ketones themselves aren't dangerous.
