Blood Ketones on my Three Year old

(Simon Saunders) #1

When your 3 year old daughter cuts herself and goes ooww red paint. I couldn’t help but test her blood ketone readings, the data geek I am. (She was fine, it was a nice clean cut on her finger, and she loved the band-aid)

1.3mmol/L , it’s truly amazing what ketone levels a healthy energy producing child produces.

Her carb tolerance is much higher than mine, she lives ad libitum lower carb diet not eating keto macros.

kids get into ketosis so much easier than adults
