    • TIPS: Limit daily carb and sugar intake to less than 20 grams. Supplement your diet with Kiss My Keto MCT Oil C8 Brain Fuel or MCT Oil Powder for healthy fats or Exogenous Ketones BHB's for additional ketone consumption. Hydration and duration of keto diet may affect testing results.

Ketones in urine indicate there is not enough insulin available to use glucose for energy; you are using fat instead.
