ketosis

Could someone please clarify this for me..........

Okay...so I've been struggling with my ED and was curious to see if I am in ketosis. This morning, I tested my urine and discovered that I have moderate traces.

I was told in treatment that this is BAD.
However, I've been googling around the internets and people are saying that it's not dangerous. It is actually what Atkins dieters strive for...to go into ketosis...so they're bodies feed off of their own fat. But unlike normal dieters I am not getting enough protein so wouldn't my body also be eating it's own muscle like around my heart? If so, most surely that is bad.
