I’ve been doing keto now for about a month and lost around 5kg.
I recently purchased some keto test strips and have been using them for the past few days. I’ve been seeing small trace of ketone on the strips (1.5mmol/L)
Testing randomly during the day.
However today, I tested first thing in the morning and it was showing 16 mmol/L, I did a bit of research and this could have been down to not drinking enough water. Later in the afternoon I tested again and I was back down to 1.5.
I tested again few minutes ago and its back at 16 mmol/L.
I did a little bit more research and now I’m concerned as high ketone levels could indicate DKA and Its telling me to see my doctor ASAP??
Is this normal when doing a keto diet?
I don’t have any underlying health issues that I am aware of.
Thanks in advance
