When fat is metabolized into ketone energy (acetoacetate), breath ketones are released (acetone). The more fat that is used to create ketones, the more breath ketones are released.

When your cells need ketone energy, all acetoacetate is used (except for what was turned into acetone). Neither urine or blood ketones are formed in this context.

When your cell energy need decrease, the excess acetoacetate have two fates: 1) when cells are not adapted, it leaves body in the urine. 2) when cells are adapted, some acetoacetate could be saved for later, when ketone energy is needed again.

In other words, when there is any breakdown of fat into ketone energy, breath ketones are released. When the need for ketone energy decrease, the excess ketone molecules will be disposed in urine or packaged into a more stable molecule (beta-hydroxybutyrate) which can circulate in blood until ketone energy is needed again. Urine and Blood Ketones are present when ketosis decrease. 

For healthy people, measuring blood ketones does not mean much, it could be nothing and you still be ini ketosis but your cells need all ketone energy it can get. It could be high from accumulating over a period or just zero because your have not been in Ketosis in a while.

Blood Ketones are only a valid measure for people with type 1 diabetes or type 2 taking SGLT2 inhibitors (also called gliflozins) medicatio, as the Blood ketones can not be converted back to acetoacetate when blood glucose is high.
