Hi Everybody I am new here and I found this forum because I am looking for other people who use the Ketonix breath analyzer. I am a little baffled with mine at the moment.
I got my Ketonix unit late on Feb. 6. I have calibrated it twice. My typical breath score is 1.0ppm and rarely goes over 1.8ppm.
I have read and re-read the instructions and I have an ongoing email exchanged with someone from Ketonix.
For example on Feb 8th my Blood Ketone test was 0.6mm, Urine 6.0mm, my breath 0.6ppm, Blood Gluclose 78. and I have been dropping weight. In spite of all the coincidences of Ketones measuring a 6 on one side of the decimal or the other the Ketonix score seems aweful low especially since meaningful ketosis supposedly does not start till you hit 4.0ppm of acetone in the breath.
If I rinse my mouth our with water my score tends to go down.
I had a gin Martini Friday night and my Ketonix score shot up to 16pmm from 1.6ppm.
I rinsed my mouth with Listerine total care and my score shot up from 1.8ppm to 68.9 while my urine was testing at 8.0 or higher. 10 minutes later it was down to 4.3ppm. 15 minutes later it is down to 1.5ppm.
Anyways I am wondering what sort of results other people are having with their ketonix unit and if they found any correlation with other measurements of Ketones?
