Ketone test kits can identify and record ketones. Large amounts of ketones can indicate a severe condition. Our test kits help you determine whether you are at risk. Here at Home Health UK, we offer a range of ketone testing kits for professional & home use. Along with a range of urine test strips, we also stock a breathalyser. The KETOSCAN mini analyser enables users to determine their ketosis level with great accuracy quickly.
As fat is broken down to produce energy, the body creates ketones in the liver. Ketones and ketoacids are alternative fuels for the body when glucose isn’t available. Diabetic ketoacidosis, or DKA, is a complication of diabetes where ketone levels rapidly rise. It can lead to a coma or even death in the worst cases, so it is critical you identify the issue early on. If you are a person with diabetes, you should complete ketone urine tests alongside your regular Diabetes self management.
