  1. Proteins in urine indicate a malfunction in the kidneys, and further testing is needed.

    Glucose levels in blood indicate your ability to metabolize and process glucose, abnormal levels indicate a pancreas problem, or diabetes.

    Lipids can indicate a highly fatty diet, causing clogged arteries. Abnormal levels can reflect a liver functioning, or even pancreas problem.
