Ketone Testing

Bayer Ketostix Reagent Strips (Ketone)

Another important test checks for ketones, chemicals that show up in the urine and blood after the body breaks down fat for energy.

Diabetics usually get ketones when they become sick because of an infection,when their blood sugar levels are high because they dont monitor their blood sugar levels often enough and when they dont give themselves enough insulin before and after meals!

Having lots of ketones in the body can put a diabetic at risk for a major diabetes emergency called diabetic ketoacidosis, which can make diabetics very sick. So it’s important to test for ketones at least once a day before they build up in the body. It’s an easy test to do at home.
