Comparing The Urine Ketone Strip Test And The Handheld Ketone Meter To Diagnose Ketosis In Early Lactation Dairy Cows1

Introduction Ketosis is a common metabolic disease in fresh dairy cows. Clinical and subclinical ketosis (SCK) can cause reduced milk yield, decreased milk protein, reduced reproductive capacity, and increased risk of displaced abomasum. Subclinical ketosis may be present in 30%–50% of early lactation cows in some herds (Divers and Peek 2008). Subclinical ketosis in dairy cattle is defined as an excess level of circulating ketone bodies in the absence of the clinical signs of ketosis (Andersson 1988). Ketosis occurs in early lactation because of the drop in blood glucose levels, which leads to a high degree of fatty acids mobilization in the form of nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA). The NEFA are then oxidized by the liver, leading to ketone body production, namely acetone, acetoacetate, and ß-Hydroxybutyrate (BHBA). Treatment for clinical ketosis or SCK is aimed at restoring glucose levels by administration of glucose i.v., glucocorticoids i.v., and propylene glycol orally or combinations. Usually, diagnosing ketosis is performed by measuring acetoacetate or BHBA levels in the blood, urine, or milk samples. The threshold for BHBA levels in the blood or urine samples to classify Continue reading >>

    99.99% its ketosis if you have been eating ketosis levels of carbs. If you have not been eating that level of carbs, you might have a problem.

Starting 2 weeks ago i dropped down to 100g of carbs a day, then ~5 days later i droped to under 50g per day. So i do believe i have been eating a ketosis level of carbs

Ketosis Plan

What Is A Ketosis Plan? Are you considering going on a ketosis plan? Under a ketosis plan, the goal is for your body to use fat for energy instead of carbohydrates which is the usual fuel that the body uses. This is one of the biggest things attributed to the weight loss success that people see when they go on a weight loss diet like the Atkins diet or the Dukan diet. Ketosis works for weight loss because when the body is using fat that it has stored for energy, that “storage space” within the body gets smaller and smaller resulting in weight loss. How Does Ketosis Work? Our bodies first turn to carbohydrates for fuel. If there are no carbohydrates to burn for energy, our bodies turn to our fat for fuel. In the process of our bodies breaking down our fat for energy, ketones are produced. If this continues, it generates a high level of ketones in our blood, resulting in a state called ketosis. There are certain muscles in the body that actually prefer ketones over carbohydrates (glucose) when it comes to fuel. A couple of the biggest of those muscles are the heart and the kidneys. Even the brain can use ketones for their energy needs. Some diet plans like the Atkins diet encoura Continue reading >>

Are You Faking Ketosis?

As the world turns, we learn more damaging information about how eating grains, highly sugary fruits, and starchy vegetables is bad for us. We learned that foods such as bread, pasta, rice, etc., are basically like eating straight glucose. The amazing damage this misleading information that led the “heart health” fantasy for over 60 is years now over. We now know that obesity, heart disease, metabolic diseases like type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure are all caused by this extremely unhealthy “heart health” hypothesis. Much misleading information is still out there but the new generation of people see past that and there is hope for recovery. However, not everything is rosy. A large number of people turn to LCHF (low carbs high fat) or ketogenic (even more low carbs and higher fat with moderate protein: no grains, no fruits and only leafy veggies as carbs) or the zero carbs (no fruits, grains or veggies at all just meat and cheese sort of foods), and there are new “fake it to make it” propositions also in abundance. And that is a new generation of bad stuff. I feel I need to clarify a few things to those of you who want real health and not “fake it” health. Afte Continue reading >>

    So Ive been eating keto for 10 months. I have lost approx' 14 pounds. I dont keep exact track of my macros, but am very conscientious of them and follow this woe. I have used the keto urine strips and they have shown me in ketosis. But Ive also read after awhile those strips arent accurate for a few reasons. Sooooo, my question is this: How does one know they are still in ketosis? (I have my own thoughts on this, but just want to read urs, as well)

  2. Mark_Bousquet

    You want to throw away those Ketostix, they are highly unreliable. Especially after you become fat adapted
    and your body starts utilizing the ketones more efficiently.
    Personally, I use both the blood test strips and the Ketonix breath acetone analyzer.
    Blood ketones (bOHB) over 0.5 mmol/L will indicate you are in nutritional ketosis. These strips are expensive in the U.S. Google "Canadian pharmacy blood ketone strips" or "Australian pharmacy blood ketone strips" to find less expensive strips.

    The Ketonix is a reusable breath analyzer that tests for acetone. The maker of this found that the level of acetone is not correlated with blood ketones, however it will give you a ballpark idea of whether or not you are in ketosis or not.

Clinically, it appears that the maintenance of ketosis is crucial to the efficacy of the diet in ameliorating seizures.
