Ketones are formed when the body does not have enough glucose in its' system, turning the ketones into an alternate source of energy. When there is not enough insulin in the body, glucose builds up in the blood, causing the body to break down fat instead. When this occurs, the liver prompts ketones to form in the blood, and spill into urine. In an individual with diabetes, ketone levels can become dangerously high and cause the blood pH to drop, which leads to an emergency health situation.
For people with diabetes, it's incredibly important to keep track of ketone levels throughout the day to avoid medical emergencies.
Use our reliable test strips alongside the Care Touch® Blood Glucose and β-Ketone Monitor to accurately observe and record your blood levels. MONITOR SOLD SEPARATELY. This package contains 10 test strips that fit perfectly with the Care Touch® monitor.
Reading Your Results
Normally, levels of β-OHB are expected to be less than 6.0mmol/L.
Readings between 0.6 and 1.5mmol/L may be problematic and can signal a problem.
Readings higher than 1.5mmol/L are dangerous, and you should contact your healthcare professional immediately, as you may be at risk for diabetic ketoacidosis.
If your results read 0.0mmol/L, use a new test strip and repeat.
NOTE: Unusually high or low β-Ketone levels may be symptoms of a serious medical condition. If most of your results are unusually high or low, please contact your healthcare professional.
If test results are unusual or inconsistent with how you are feeling: Make sure the confirmation window of the test strip is completely filled with blood; Check the expiration date of the test strips; Check the performance of your meter and test strip with the control solutions.
Store in a capped vial in a cool and dry space between 35.6°F and 86.0°F. Keep out of direct sunlight.
