Keto-Diastix Reagent Strips for Urinalysis Overview
The Ascensia Keto-Diastix Test Strips for Urinalysis, once used primarily as a diabetic management tool, is now a popular item among dieters wanting to measure their ketosis level. Ascensia, formerly Bayer Keto-Diastix Reagent Strips, measure the ketones expelled through the urine to keep dieter well-informed of the body's metabolic process. When in ketosis, the body is burning fat and not carbohydrates.1 Regular testing helps dieters know if they are on track to achieve their weight loss goals. Additionally, the urinalysis strip tests the glucose concentration to support diabetes management, including gestational diabetes for pregnant women.
