Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

A ketone blood test is a simple and quick way to check if you’re in ketosis.
Ketones can be detected in your urine or blood. A ketone blood test is the most accurate way to measure ketosis.

A ketone blood test is used to measure the level of ketones in your blood. Ketones are produced when your body breaks down fat for energy. Ketone levels can increase when your body is not getting enough insulin (a hormone that helps control blood sugar levels).

If you are on a ketogenic diet, or if you are trying to determine if you are in ketosis, then you may be wondering when to take a ketone blood test.

The best time to take a ketone blood test is in the morning before eating breakfast. This is because your body will be in a fasting state and your ketone levels will be at their highest.

The normal range for a ketone blood test is 0.5-3.0 mmol/L. A reading of greater than 3.0 mmol/L indicates ketosis, which is a condition that can occur when the body breaks down fat for energy.

If you are testing your ketone levels at home, there are a few things you can do to lower your ketone blood test level.

  • First, make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids. This will help to dilute your blood and lower your ketone levels.
  • Second, if you are on a low-carbohydrate diet, try increasing your carb intake for a few days. This will help to bring down your ketone levels.
  • Third, if you are exercising regularly, try reducing the intensity or duration of your workouts. This will help to use up more of the glucose in your blood and lower your ketone levels.
  • Fourth, if you are taking any medication that could be affecting your ketone levels, talk to your doctor about changing or stopping the medication.

Ketone Blood Test is risk-free and completely safe to take.

If you are planning to have a ketone blood test, there are a few things that you should do beforehand in order to ensure accurate results.

  • First, it is important to fast for at least 8 hours before the test. This means that you should not eat or drink anything during this time period, except for water.
  • You should also avoid any strenuous activity or exercise during this time.

When it comes to the ketone blood test, fasting is not required.
