As for diabetics, energy is a shortage when the body can not use glucose normally. The decomposition of fat increases to supply energy and a large amount of ketone is produced correspondingly in the body. It would cause metabolic acidosis or serious life-threatening if much of ketone is accumulated in the body. It is very important for diabetics to test ketone in irregular-time. Not only that, some studies show that blood ketone of diabetics will be significantly increased before the rise of blood glucose levels, which may play the role of early warning for diabetes deterioration
Blood Ketone Monitoring
Blood ketone Monitoring System is used to measure blood ketone using peripheral blood or vein blood by laypersons (most of them are affected by diabetes mellitus.). In-home or by a physician in a hospital.
A small drop of blood, obtained by pricking the skin with a lancet, is placed on a disposable test strip that the meter reads and uses to calculate the
blood Ketone level. The meter then displays the level in units of mg/dl or mmol/l.
The β-HBA, in the presence of hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase, was oxidized to acetoacetate with the concomitant reduction of NAD t o NADH.
The NADH was reoxidized to NAD by an electron mediator, and the current generated was directly proportional to the β-HBA concentration. Insert End Reaction Area After 30 s, the concentrations (mmol/l) were displayed.
10 to 40
Protection from diabetic ketoacidosis.
Blood ketone monitoring: 30-second test for ketone body.
Advanced, professional, rapid, convenient and inexpensive.
