People with insulin dependent diabetes should take a ketone test:

A blood ketone test is carried out in a similar way to a blood glucose test .

Put a blood ketone strip into the meter Prick your finger using the lancing device Allow blood to the ketone strip Wait for the result Safely discard the test strip Discard the lancet into a sharps bin

Note that only a select number of blood glucose meters provide ketone testing functionality.
