How to Test for Ketones

Testing for ketones is relevant for people with type 1 diabetes.

In type 1 diabetes, a lack of insulin can lead to higher levels of ketones which in turn could lead to a dangerous state called ketoacidosis.

Diabetes UK recommends people with type 1 diabetes test for ketones if blood glucose levels become high –usually above 15 mmol/L.

Testing for ketones in this way can help you to get advice and treatment before the level of ketones becomes dangerous.

    People always talk about getting a six pack, I just wanted a flat stomach. But the keto diet was unbearable for me. I tried the Agoge diet and so far have awesome results. Highly recommended!

  2. Joshua Mangus

    So do you want a lot of ketones in your urine or not?

  3. Ayushi Rajpoot

  4. Hector Cabrera

  5. MrFluero

    why does my urine keto strip read dark purple but then one min later my blood ketones are only 0.9… confused

  7. X Phone Gaming INC.

    I’m the second last to the last darkness but I do a 16 hour fast everyday and drinks tons of water. Actually I have one glass of coffee in the morning and then it’s literally just water all day. Is it okay ?

  8. Shine Right

    My test comes as negative every time, and I did the same thing as him

  9. Jon Jon

    So if I test me piss and it's the first after 5 days keto is that good ?? Or is the last shade good ?

  10. Alan Cameron

    Not very good, doesn't say WHEN to do test, pre or post eating?

  11. nobody special

    I want to know about the numbers and what the H do they mean????"?????

    Basically the darker the color the more fat you are burning because you are in ketosis and if it is not the 2nd last 2 darkest colors follow the ratio for 75% fats 20%protien and 5%carbs. Eat lots of avocado because it has no taste after putting it in the fridge and boost up you physical activity level.

  13. Keila Medina Miller

    If it’s dark, can it be dangerous? The only info it has on the instructions is that you might be dehydrated if it’s really dark… I’m to confused so which color is the one that’s good to be on?

  14. Łoveë Dïjah

    is it me or is his camera tripping, cause rn I’m fasting

  15. F PILL

    image is blur !!!!!!!! and you must say what time is better to test ketones …

    Seeing a lot of reviews from Dr IGUDIA on YouTube for Diabetes disease cure not until I gave it a shot and that was the end of my Diabetes disease after using his herbal medicine

    Furthermore using urine to measure ketones works for 2-3 days maximum and your body says “oh Shit” let’s hold up on pissing that energy away and they stop showing up in urine. Blood tests for home use are the way to go. Our modern medicine is not good for dietary advice, if it was we wouldn’t have an overweight lady talking to us about “sugar”

  18. Florida Life - Living In Florida

    This information is sketchy at best. First of all listening to an overweight person regarding health is never a good idea. I have been practising ketosis for a while and if you have ketones in your blood it means a few things. 1 – you are not fat adapted, your body is pissing them out and this stops pretty quickly when following a keto type diet. Number 2. To be in ketosis your blood sugar must be low. You are either burning fat or glucose. Your body won’t do both. As for type One diabetics you need to talk with a doctor who understands and supports a low carb diet. Autophagy is what some of us aim for, which is therapeutic healing of its self. In short getting rid of proteins it doesn’t need that are damaged.

    May God bless Dr IGUDIA on his YouTube channel who cured my Type 2 Diabetes with his herbs medication

  20. Priscilla Camacho

    Dr IGUDIA on YouTube medication is indeed the best treatment to Diabetes disease. I’m a living testimony to his medication

  21. Alpha Dev

    In my opinion the Agoge diet is the best diet available, you get rid of fat fast and feel energetic.

  22. Anas Abbasi

    No need to punish yourself with keto. It's just a matter of calories in, calories out. Following a structured and diverse diet like the Agoge diet helps a great deal though.

  23. Sanika Gawade

    I lost so much fat with the Agoge diet after struggling with exhaustion from the ketogenic diet. You may find the Agoge diet on Google if you want to try it out.

  24. ey'ar malu TV

    The only diet that works for me is the Agoge diet ? All others were tough to stick with and I felt horrible

  25. BiggRigg42

    Does how long I keep the stick under the urine matter?

  26. Cloud9Photography

    why does my urine keto strip read dark purple 4.0+ but then one min later my blood ketones are only 0.9… confused

  27. Pandelis Katsianis

    what is the PH for ketosis!!!!!!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

  28. Dr Youtube

    I am a hormone doctor and have an active educational channel. The urine tests for acetoacetate. The blood tests for hydroxybutyrate. If ketone is more than 3, the more at risk of developing DKA! Remember, you can still have ketoacidosis in type 2 diabetics – especially if you take SGLT-2 medication (e.g. -glifozin)

  29. Sanath Song

    Hiyaaaa! Have you tried – brown fat antidiabetic miracle (google it)? Ive heard some unbelivable things about it and my m8 got amazing results with it.


    Ketones, ketones, ketones… the word may make you want to run a mile but it is important to know what they are and how to test for them!

    The presence of high levels of ketones in the bloodstream is a common…
