This blood test measures the level of ketones in the body. Our body produces ketones when cells don't receive enough glucose (blood sugar) - the primary energy source for the body. A coma or possible death can result from diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), a consequence of diabetes, which is indicated by high ketone levels. A blood test for ketones can alert one to the need for treatment before a medical emergency arises.
