Defining ketones, the article states, “Ketones can be defined as water soluble organic molecules that are synthesized in the liver in the absence of glucose. The purpose of creating ketones in the body is to provide an alternative source of fuel. While consuming a standard high-carb diet, the energy required to run the body is generated from glucose. However, in a carb-starved body following a ketogenic diet, this fuel is created from fat and a part of the same is converted into ketone.”

While following a ketogenic or any other low-carb diet, it is extremely important for the dieters to understand whether their body has entered the ketosis stage. This is the metabolic state where the body starts burning fat for energy, creating ketones as the by-product. Naturally, this awareness plays a vital role in ensuring the success of a diet plan.

Just Fitter mentions that ketone testing strips were originally formulated to protect the type I diabetes patients from the danger of ketoacedosis. In this life threatening condition, the blood becomes acidic due to its excessively high ketone concentration. However, ketoacedosis is only found in people suffering from diabetes.

In the article, Just Fitter also discusses the functional aspects of keto testing strips. These paper strips come with an absorptive pad in one end. The pads contain specific types of chemical reagents that can change color in contact with ketones. When the strips are placed in the urine stream, these chemicals trigger a color change in presence of ketones. The exact reading can be ascertained by comparing this color with the color chart provided with the kit. In general, light pink indicates the presence of ketones in low concentration. A high ketone concentration, on the other hand, is indicated by a dark purple color.

To end the post, Just Fitter mentioned that keto urine strips are undoubtedly great for the dieters while they are in the process of adapting to a low-carb diet plan. Though there are other alternatives that are more accurate, those methods are invasive and can be beyond the purchasing power of many dieters.
