    I already have the PrecisionXtra made by Abbott. It will test both ketones and glucose - but not on the same strip!!
    You buy glucose strips separate and they are like other brands where you usually buy 50-100 at a time, and maybe a bit higher $$ than average glucose.
    Ketone strips are usually easier to buy online (EBay, Amazon, etc). They are usually 10 to a box and price runs $2-3 per strip - or cheaper maybe in Canada. They are a different foil pack color so you can either go by color or by the fact that glucose or Ketone are clearly printed on whichever one you are looking at. In addition, I have seen Ketone strips "cheaper" but they are closer to their expiration date. So you watch out for that.
    To my mind, the PrecisionXtra tests too high for glucose. Or else the old model I had (freestyle, also by Abbott, glucose only, a hand me down from my stepdad) was not working properly and read Low and/or I'm still in denial.
    What's that saying - there is no river in denial??
    So I have been going nuts trying to analyze the prices for the Nova Max Plus equipment, which from all appearances, will do the same as my PrecisionXtra but cheaper. Some will sell just the meter itself and I prolly don't need a new lancet specifically. EBay seems to have the cheapest just for the box of Ketone strips. So I may by the meter from Amazon or from the NovaMax website, and buy the strips from eBay. Or I may get the whiz-bang "free" meter with your choice of 2 box configurations - 2 boxes of ketone strips (total of 20 strips); 2 boxes of glucose (total 100 glucose strips); or 1 box Ketone (10) strips and 1 box of glucose (50) --- all three combos land at $39.98 or some such (and I am pretty much repeating what someone else said earlier here, or in another thread, sorry, more as confirming that I wasn't crazy since someone else had same info.)... thinking I may just do it that way, and then plan to buy replacement strips from the eBay vendors.
    Decisions decisions...
    Then I want to compare with the PrecisionXtra and see what my numbers are...

    What is the site to get it? It's a different meter than one a diabetic uses to check for glucose level right?

    So I have questions about the blood testing for ketones. Are you using the standard diabetic testing supplies? The meter looks the same, but are there different types of test strips? or is it the same and there is a different reading you look for? obviously I'm confused
