Since I exercise 4-5 days a week should I test for ketones ?
Hi Mays, This is a medical question and you'll have to ask your doctor, however I did find this : http://www.joslin.org/info/ketone_testing_what_you_need_to_know.html When should I test for ketones? Anytime your blood glucose is over 250 mg/dl for two tests in a row. When you are ill. Often illness, infections, or injuries will cause sudden high blood glucose and this is an especially important time to check for ketones. When you are planning to exercise and the blood glucose is over 250 mg/dl. If you are pregnant, you should test for ketones each morning before breakfast and any time the blood glucose is over 250 mg/dl. Hope this helps!
