Does anybody here know about much about ketostix?
I read somewhere (I clicked off it already) that they measure acetoacetate only and NOT acetone nor beta-hydroxybutyrate.
All three contribute to keytosis as in DKA and/or metabolic acidosis.
I don’t recall the many details of ketosis beyond a cursory level. So, I don’t know, for instance, exactly when one would show a high serum keytone level or a high hospital urine lab for keytones (measuring all three types) but a negative or scant home urine dipstick. I think it would be rare.
Short of looking it up, because it probably wouldn’t be fast, does anybody know?
