Measure Ketones and Glucose

Measuring Ketones

There are three main ways to measure ketosis: urine strips, blood test devices and breath ketone devices. You can measure your ketone levels to see when you reach ketosis and if anything you are drinking/eating during your fast substantially affects your ketone levels.

Urine ketone strips are not very accurate. They don’t detect all forms of ketone bodies, such as the important beta-hydroxybutyrate or BHB.

Blood ketone and glucose meters are accurate but require you to prick your finger to draw blood. Our favorite blood ketone meter is the Keto-Mojo device.

Finally, you can measure ketosis with a breath device. The advantage of breath devices is that you simply breath into the device to measure your current level of ketosis. These devices also do not require additional supplies so it is easy and cost effective to measure ketosis multiple times a day.

Our favorite is the BIOSENSE device from Readout Health. BIOSENSE is fully integrated with LIFE Fasting Tracker and LIFE Extend so your measurements are automatically entered into the applications.
