Ketone Test Strips

The basics of Ketosis

Ketosis is a metabolic state in which your blood contains a lot of ketones, namely beta-Hydroxybutyrate. It happens when your body chooses to use fat as its primary fuel source as a result of having less access to blood sugar or glucose, which is frequently brought on by starvation, fasting, or eating a very low-carbohydrate diet. Since your body doesn’t have enough carbs and as your body breaks down fat, it produces a compound called ketones. The ketones, or ketone bodies, become your body and brain’s main source of energy. Despite contrasting views, ketosis may offer a number of health advantages, including reduced epileptic seizures in children, weight loss, and better control of blood sugar.

What is the use of Ketone Strips?

Similar to pregnancy tests, ketone tests are strips that you urinate on to measure the amounts of acetoacetate, a specific form of ketone. It's normal to have some ketones in your urine. However, high level of ketone in your urine could indicate that your body is overly acidic. This is commonly called ketoacidosis. People who are more prone to developing high levels of ketones are frequently monitored with a urine test for ketones. There is a high risk if you have an existing medical condition, on a diet, or habits that cause your body to use fat for main energy instead of glucose. Also, if you have diabetes, ketone strips allow you to detect how high the level of your ketone is, leading to early treatment.

How to check Urine for Glucose and Ketones?

Follow the guidelines included in the ketone test kit. A package of test strips is included in the kit. After opening the bottle, write the date the bottle was first opened on the container. The test strips should not be used after 6 months from that date. Dip the test areas of the strip in the urine. To read the ketone and glucose results, observe the change in color of the ketone strips, and compare it to the results chart on the bottle. Read the ketone results at 15 seconds, while read the glucose results at 30 seconds.
