Test strips can measure more than glucose levels in the body. Urine strips can also identify and record ketones. Large amounts of ketones present in the urine can indicate a severe condition. Diabetic ketoacidosis may be present, and our test kits help you identify whether you’re at risk. However, you must bear in mind that a diet deficient in carbohydrates, severe vomiting and starvation could also be responsible for high ketone levels in the urine.
Identifying ketone levels can be helpful beyond controlling diabetes! If you’re trying to lose weight and eating a diet low in carbohydrates, you may benefit from urine test kits. If your urine is high in ketones, you’ve entered a state of ketosis, and your body is using fat as fuel. As long as you don’t have diabetes, ketosis can be a beneficial state to improve your health and wellbeing.
