Why do you need a keto meter?

 

What are ketones?

Our bodies need energy to live and move. We all know glucose. It is produced in the stomach and intestines and provides the body with fuel.
 
Insulin then helps to convert glucose into energy. If we have little insulin in our bodies and cannot convert glucose, the body switches to burn fat as fuel. Ketones are released when fats are broken down.
 
People with diabetes are often already familiar with ketones, because they have problems producing insulin.

Why should I pay attention to my Ketones?

With too many ketones in your blood, this waste can lead to ketoacidosis. This literally acidifies the blood and causes organs and other body functions to fail. It is therefore very important that you notice quickly if you have ketoacidosis.
If you have a normal and varied diet, it will not occur. However, if you suffer from diabetes or follow a ketogenic diet, it is wise to measure ketones regularly.

 

When should I measure my ketones?

In theory, you are free to measure your ketones whenever you want. However, it is wise to measure 3 times a day. Preferably measure in the morning, before dinner and before going to bed. In addition, you should pay close attention to the symptoms listed below. When you – as a diabetic or someone who follows the ketogenic diet – suffer from these symptoms, it is recommended to measure ketones immediately:
 
  • Thirst and need to urinate often
  • Dry mouth
  • Breath that smells like acetone (sweet apple or nail polish)
  • Abdominal pain and nausea
  • Blurred vision
  • Feeling dazed

What does the result of a measurement say?

If you have a value below 0.6 mmol/L, it means that you have a normal ketone level. Then there is no need to worry.
 
Between 0.6 and 1.5 mmol/L, you have an elevated ketone level. Fat is burned, for example during or after exercise, but you are at risk of an insulin deficiency. There is no cause for alarm yet, but please pay attention. Drink plenty of water, eat regularly in small portions, inject some extra insulin if you are diabetic and test again later.
 
A result between 1.6 and 3.0 mmol/L is cause for concern. You then have a high level of ketones with a risk of ketoacidosis. In this case, contact a healthcare professional immediately for advice. Call the emergency services immediately if you have a result above 3.0 mmol/L and especially if you have vomited.
 

 

What should you look for when choosing a Ketone meter?

First of all, it is important to buy a so-called “Dual” meter. These can measure both Glucose and Ketones with the same device. It is also important that you can measure glucose and ketones on two different strips. This increases the reliability of the result considerably. You do not have two different enzymes on the strip that can influence the result.
 
It is also important to pay attention to the measuring range. A measuring range of 0.6 – 33.3 mmol/L (10 – 600mg/dL) for Glucose and 0 – 8.0 mmol/L is optimal.
 
Finally, you want the device to be able to calculate the value quickly, store it, and not require so much blood to operate.

 

 

Why should I pay attention to the amount of Ketones?

With too many ketones in the blood, this waste can lead to ketoacidosis. This literally acidifies the blood and causes organs and other body functions to fail. It is therefore very important that you notice quickly when you have ketoacidosis.
 
If you have a normal and varied diet it will not occur. However, if you suffer from diabetes or follow a ketogenic diet, it is wise to measure regularly.

 

Glucose and Ketones as part of treatment

Fourteen percent of boys and 17 percent of girls between the ages of four and fifteen are overweight. Being overweight at a young age increases the risk of physical problems such as back problems, injuries, painful joints, fatigue, but also diabetes.
 
Patients come to see a physiotherapist with these complaints, injuries and the physical problems associated with them. It is therefore increasingly common for physiotherapists to measure glucose levels and ketone levels in order to address one factor of these problems and to specifically eliminate the risk in order to remedy the complaints and prevent new complaints from arising.
