    Hi there QTKTUK
    If you’re diabetes is controlled through insulin or tablets you are entitled to free prescriptions (this does not apply to just diet controlled diabetics) visit http://www.ppa.org.uk/ppa/medex.htm to claim an exemption certificate, you can still claim even if you work. In the mean time go to your GPs and ask them to prescribe you the ketone test strips, don’t wait for the certificate to come through the post. Also you can get the optium xceed blood glucose monitor which also measures your ketone levels through a drop of blood (the same way you would test your sugar levels) this is a more accurate way of testing for ketones.

Ketosis is very serious and if it is not treated right it will lead to Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) in which the symptoms are often linked with high blood sugars, i.e. Increase in thirst, increase urination, tiredness, confusion, possible loss of consciousness. The symptoms of acidosis are: fast deep breathing, the smell of acetone (similar to pear drops) on your breath, nausea and vomiting and lack or no energy at all. To combat ketones you must consume carbohydrates and drink plenty of water. Don’t take any chances; if you feel like your condition is getting worse go to your local A&E or GPs straight away.

If it smells foul, then ketosis is occurring (or you've just not cleaned your teeth ;) And your local pharmacy should have test strips for not a lot of money...
