The Diatesse XPER blood sugar meter has the ability to also measure ketones. During exercise, our body uses sugars. Sometimes these can also be fats.
Ketones are formed when fats are consumed. These ketones, if in large quantities, can acidify our blood. An elevated ketone level is called a “ketosis”. A strongly elevated ketone level, including acidification, is called a “ketoacidosis”
Since ketoacidosis in combination with diabetes can lead to a diabetic coma, measurement of ketones is strongly recommended under special circumstances. Certainly if there is also illness and/or fever and vomiting. You should also consult your healthcare provider!
Why measure ketones?
During physical exertion, our body uses sugars (Glucose) or fats. The consumption of body fats creates ketones and in large quantities this can acidify your blood. An increase in your ketone level is also known as ketoacidosis. Since ketoacidosis in combination with diabetes can lead to a diabetic coma, measurement of ketones is strongly recommended under special circumstances. Otherwise, you can also look at the Ketogenic Diet, for example.
