Dietary Health Management
Ketone levels should be measured by individuals following a ketogenic diet or those with diabetes. Measuring ketone levels is important to ensure that the body is in a state of ketosis, where it is burning fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates. This is important for those following a ketogenic diet to ensure that they are achieving the desired metabolic state for weight loss or other health benefits. For individuals with diabetes, ketone monitoring can help prevent a potentially life-threatening condition called diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), which occurs when ketone levels become too high in the blood.
