Ketone Testing

When to test for ketones?

People with insulin dependent diabetes should take a ketone test:

Any time your blood sugar is over 17 mmol/l (300 mg/dl) If sugar levels have repeatedly been over 13 mmol/l (230 mg/dl) If you are unwell and have any of the symptoms of ketoacidosis How to do a blood 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.

How to do a urine ketone test

Before testing, check the expiry date on the tub to ensure the strips are good for use. Also check the instructions which will tell you how long you need to wait, after urine is applied to the strip, before checking the colour chart.
