Ketone Urinalysis Test Strips
Ketone Test strips test for the presence of Ketones in your urine. Ketones are present in your urine when your body uses fat as a source of energy as opposed to carbohydrates.
What is Ketosis?
Ketosis is when your body uses fat as an energy source. Ketosis normally occurs from either a metabolic condition such as hypoglycaemia, or when you follow a low-carb or ketogenic diet. Some people’s metabolisms benefit from restricting carbohydrates to a certain level and is considered and effective form of weight loss. However this must be monitored as carbohydrates are an important source of energy for our body to function.
Benefits of following a Ketogenic Diet
