Glucose monitors

Howdy,

Does anyone know if one of these gadgets can measure blood ketone levels? I honestly couldn't find in item description and support team didn't get back to me yet.

Nope, they only measure blood glucose. You need something like these to detect or estimate ketones in blood. As it says here

Is what you need or Boots own brand glucose meter ( looks almost identical ) - they will measure one of the ketone in your blood

I don't see where on the website it says that that device measures ketones? Just
Quote:
Screen alerts (e.g. Test Ketones)
Which sounds more like it tells you to test for ketones when your blood glucose is low.

I have the Abbott one and Boots own-brand one

- they can measure the beta-hydroxybutyrate ( one of the ketones) in your blood
