I’ve had excellent blood sugars all week. I attribute this to IF and LCHF eating. However, the other day, I came home from work and randomly did a ketone test, which said I have Large Ketones. I freaked out, since I’ve recently had DKA 2x, and immediately drank a lot of water and SF powerade and beef broth with extra salt. After about an hour or so of that, my ketones went to small, then by end of night were at trace. I drank an enormous amount of water. The next morning, they were trace again. All that day, trace. This morning, trace. Did some errands after breakfast, came home, just tested and they are Large again!!
I know almost nothing about ketones.
What is going on with me?? Should I be concerned? I hear you can expect to have ketones if low carbing, but I also know I had large ketones when I had DKA so I’m very, very nervous.
Can someone please let me know what could be going on?? What level of ketones is “good” for nutritional ketosis?? but not dangerous (ie DKA)
