These do work but it depends if you are dieting or medically require them.

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.
