Measures for presence of ketones in the urine.
1. Test for urinary ketones in first void of the day before breakfast from day 3 onward.
2. Insert the strip with the test pad into the mid-stream of urine, or collect a sample and dip into the sample only enough to cover the test pad.
3. Wait 60 seconds then compare the colour on the test strip to the colour chart on the container.
4. Ideal colour for the SDII™ Programme is between 5 and 10 (in the pink), this indicates the body is breaking down fatty acids to use for energy.
