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.
