What are Ketostix?

Ketostix are testing strips which help you to test the levels of ketone in your urine. This can help people who are at risk of Diabetic Ketoacidosis, especially those with type 1 and type 2 diabetes to manage their ketone levels at home.


What is Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA)?

Diabetic Ketoacidosis, also known as DKA, is a serious condition that can occur in people who have diabetes. It happens when your body begins to run out of insulin, letting harmful substances known as ketones build up to potentially dangerous levels. DKA can be life-threatening, and you may need to go to your local A&E if you notice a raise in ketone levels.


How will this product help me to detect DKA?

Ketostix detect the number of ketones in your urine. This helps you to notice when spikes in ketone numbers could indicate DKA, meaning that you’ll need to seek urgent medical attention.


How to use Ketostix

Ketostix use a dip-and-read method of testing. Hold the reagent area of the testing stick into a urine sample and compare the colour of the testing area to the colour samples on the side of the bottle to determine your results. Before using the test, avoid touching the reagent area of the test strip with your fingers or any other object.


What do my test results mean?

Your Ketostix use a ratings system which helps you to easily see your ketone levels. The darker the colour of your test result, the higher the number of ketones in your body. These colours are assigned to a plus or minus rating, and if your result shows ++ or higher then there is a high chance that you could have DKA and should speak to your doctor right away.
