At the beginning of the new blog post, Just Fitter mentions that measuring ketones is extremely essential while following a keto diet. These high-fat and low-carb diet plans force the body to burn fat for energy by shifting it towards a metabolic state known as ketosis. Acetone, Acetoacetate and Beta-Hydroxybutyrate are the three types of ketones produced during this process and are released though the breath, urine, and bloodstream respectively.
The article lists down the following methods for measuring ketones in the body.
Blood Ketone Meter: Used for the measurement of Beta-Hydroxybutyrate concentration in the blood. Most accurate of all methods, but can be prohibitive because of its high cost and for some an invasive measurement process.
Breath Testing: This is used for the measurement of acetone levels through breath analysis. This method is inexpensive and non-invasive, but may not provide the actual picture because breath ketones are not always the correct reflection of blood ketones.
Keto Urine Strips: Most commonly used method for the measurement of Acetoacetate through the urine. These thin paper strips change their color in contact with ketones, and the process is extremely easy. The reading can be obtained by a comparison between the changed color of the strip and the reference chart that comes with the kit. These strips are inexpensive, and can be extremely useful while following a ketogenic diet plan.
To sum up the discussion, the article mentions, “The most suitable method for the measurement of body ketone depends entirely on your specific goals. If you have just started following a ketogenic diet plan, keto urine strips are undoubtedly the best option for you. These strips are cheap, and require no medical supervision or expensive measurement device.”
