How to Test Ketones In Urine
Testing urine ketone levels is one of the simplest ways to determine whether or not you are in ketosis. That being said, it is also considered less accurate and reliable than other methods (like testing blood ketone levels).
Urine test strips are available over-the-counter in many drug stores and even some mass retailers like Walmart. Simply urinate on the indicated portion of the testing strip, allow to sit for as long as the packaging directs (typically 1-3 minutes), and match the color indicating strip with the reference on the box or packaging.
Both blood and urine ketone tests are available over-the-counter; however, blood tests tend to be the most accurate. Blood sugar levels can only be tested through blood.
