These do exactly as they say they check for traces of ketones in your urine and the density is calculated by the colour chart on the side. If you are using these for a medical reason the chart plays an important part in this.

However, if like me you are doing the ketogenic diet, carb cycling or for some the atkins diet all this will do is register that you are in ketosis and it does not matter what colour it is to confirm you are in this state. The only worry should be if it is darker purple as then you are not consuming enough water and/or you should see a doctor if this does not lighten with sufficient fluid intake.

If you are in ketosis you are in ketosis please do not mark this product down because you only show trace, I know fully well that I am in ketosis because my carbs are below 20 grams and sugar non existent but still I do not always register a positive reading because of my fluid intake. Do not use these every time you go to the toilet, once a day first thing in the morning should confirm if your diet is working for you.

Does exactly what it says on the box - Ketostix for detecting ketone bodies in the urine, perfect for those on a low carbohydrate diet. I won't bore you with the details, but low-carb diets force the body into using fat stores, and when this happens fat is converted into fatty acids and ketone bodies - so if there are ketone bodies in your urine, you're losing weight.

There are 50 strips in the tub with a screw tight lid, and all the information and "ketone scale" is on the tub, so if you lose the box and leaflet it's no big deal. The results are colour determined so it's fairly accurate, tested them with both myself (on a low-carb diet) and my boyfriend (not on low-carb diet) and the results were easily distiguishable.

I got this for myself when I tried the Atkin's diet. It was really easy to use and it did what it was meant to do. I was able to keep check of my ketone levels.

These arrived within 2 days of ordering, and were competitively priced.

I've found Ketostix to provide an accurate indication of how my low-carbohydrate diet is progressing. The result is usually readable almost immediately, although the manufacturer recommends waiting for 15 seconds before reading. The results can be a bit variable from day-to-day, but you can get a good overall idea as to ketone levels.

I checked reviews for all other brands and yes you can get double the amount for cheaper BUT some reviews say they dont work as effectively so I chose to stick with these as I know for certain these give the correct results.

Very happy with it. I am still using them after the recommended period. The reason I still believe they are reliable is because I test the family as well. The results are clearly different when I test myself. I also like testing how reliable they are when I drink alcohol and I know the reading is going to vary. I will buy them again.
