    Hi there group members. I'm getting to the point where I feel i should be testing my blood ketones. I live in the USA and would ideally like a meter / insert strip system that measures both ketones and blood sugars. Anyone have knowledge? Is the ketonox breath analyzer better and why?

    I've been using one for months and I love it.
