Keep an eye on your ketone levels with the Nova Max Plus Ketone Test Strips. Ketone blood sampling is an important method used by diabetics to prevent a serious complication known as ketoacidosis. Ketone test strips are used with a ketone monitor to screen for and detect ketoacidosis. It is recommended that you test your ketone levels when your blood sugar is greater than 250 mg/dL or you experience symptoms such as dry mouth, thirstiness, or excessive urination.
Montioring ketone levels is also popular among low carb dieters who want to achieve ketosis. This allows individuals to know when their body has switched from relying on carbohydrates for energy to burning fat. Many dieters use urine test strips because they are faster.
