Abbott Freestyle Blood Ketone Strips

Why test for ketone levels?

High ketone levels in the blood in an indication that your body is breaking down fats in your body to convert to energy. It is a by product of the conversion of body fat to energy. For many people on the ketone diet that are trying to get their body into ketosis, high levels of ketones (readings of 1.5 mmol/L or greater) is an indication that they are losing fats from the body.

What is the keto or ketone diet?

The ketone diet is similar to the atkins diet, in which carbohydrates are reduced. When this occurs, the body does not have enough instant energy to utilise, so it is forced to draw upon fat reserves.

Is the ketone or ketosis diet safe?

Ketosis is a normal part of every human body, however it is not recommended to keep the body in a permanent state of high levels of ketosis, especially for diabetics as it can lead to another condition known as diabetic ketoacidosis.

It is recommended that before proceeding with this diet, a medical practitioner is engaged to assist in managing any potential negative side effects.

What is the difference between blood and urine ketone testing?

The ketone levels in urine will fluctuate depending upon how much or how little liquids have been consumed. The testing of ketones in the blood stream is considered to be a more accurate test for the pressence of ketones as consuming more or less water will not greatly affect the reading.
