This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies. i was playing around with a ketone meter (not nearly as seriously compared to my glucose meter and monitoring) and heard a podcast reference Dr. Thomas N Seyfried and a paper he wrote tied to this blood glucose vs. ketone ratio and cancer. while I think there were some controversial remarks made related to his take on diabetes, and the GKI is going to be difficult for most folks here to hit (below 1.0), it was nice: to see more studies in this area and more data points strongly connecting cancer and sugar. along with the point that one can have normal blood glucose levels while still having high insulin levels - something folks here already know. nice summary and related blog post: I have made many of these measurements,the lowest ratio I ever got was 0.54 ie 4.0 mmoles/l of BG and 7.4 mmoles/l of betahydroxybutyrate. Indicates very low insulin levels.Its expensive to carry out a lot of these tests. I now use the Ketonix breathyliser to monitor ketones. Hi Orlando!

    What is the difference between a glucose meter and a ketone meter? These two devices are the same right?

    There are only 3 ketone meters (Precision Xtra, Keto Mojo, Nova Max) and they can all read glucose. There are many glucose only meters in the market.
    Ketone strips are expensive, costing a minimum of $1 each. Mojo has the cheapest, followed by Max, then Xtra, though the later can be found on sale. The glucose strips are cheaper.

    I’ve had the Xtra for a few months and just bought the Mojo. I use an inexpensive Walmart meter for glucose because the strips are cheap.

    Just adding to the above. If your concern is primarily your blood sugar numbers, then a glucose meter is what you want.
    If you want to concentrate on ketone production and staying with a certain level of ketosis then the ketone meter is what you need. If both, go for the combo meters listed in the above post.
