    cheapest ketostix (UK)

    hi all
    just wondering where everyone gets their ketostix? The cheapest I've
    found is £4.25 for 50 at my local chemist. on-line prices are about the
    same if not more when you add P&P.
    p.s. they dont necassarily have to be bayer ketostix. I lived in turkey
    for a while and used an unbranded make which worked just as well.
    any bargains to be had?

    any bargains to be had?
    Some people have found bargains at online auctions, but they weren't
    being sold at Ebay and such back when I was using them.
    The best way to create a bargain is to cut them in half lengthwise,
    to double your ketosticks. This should be done as quickly as possible,
    without touching the pads, because exposure to air and moisture makes
    them expire sooner. Cutting them makes them a little more susceptible
    (than whole ones) to washing the reagent off when passed through
    the stream, though, so dipping them in a small sample might give
    better results.
    I didn't find anything cheaper than the Bayer at the local discount
    pharmacy (WalMart), but I only used them for the first few months.
    After a while, I could tell when I was in or out of ketosis, because
    I feel a lot warmer in ketosis -- I'm comfortable with the thermostat
    set about 5 degrees lower when I'm in ketosis than when I'm not.
    Newbies should be aware that some low-carb branded ketosticks
    (I don't remember which brand) are being sold on the shelf near
    lowcarb shake mixes and bars in some stores, but cost hugely more
    than the ones you need to ask the pharmacist for (something like $18
    for 25 LC branded ones, vs about $15 for 100 Bayer at WalMart).
