"Three years in the making, I’m so excited to finally announce the world’s first high-quality yet affordable blood ketone testing device and strips that is set to revolutionize the way people test for nutritional ketosis. Keto-mojo will meet the demand of these cost-conscious low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic consumers like no other blood ketone testing device on the market. I fully stand behind and enthusiastically support this innovative new technology as the official blood ketone testing device for the legion of fans of Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb, Keto Clarity, and my podcasts." - Jimmy Moore
Q: Why use blood test strips for ketone testing?
A: A ketosis blood test is more accurate at measuring ketones in the body than a breath or urine test. Depending on your levels of hydration, urine can dilute the amount of ketones in the reading, giving you a less-than-perfect ketones test reading.
Q: How do keto test strips work?
A: Use a keto test strip the same way you would if you were to test your blood sugar levels- prick your finger, squeeze a drop of blood out, and use the keto-mojo meter to test your blood.
Q: Can I reuse ketone strips?
A: No, you cannot reuse your ketone strips.
Q: What ketones test reading should I be looking for?
A: A 0.5 mmol to 1.5 mmol ketogenic strip reading is considered “mild ketosis.” Deep ketosis, which is best for weight loss, is between 1.5 mmol and 3.0mmol/L. A reading over 6.0 mmol/L indicates the beginning of a dangerous state known as ketoacidosis. While it’s almost impossible to get to reach this state on a standard ketogenic diet alone, type 1 diabetics can sometimes notice this when their insulin levels are extremely low. This would require medical attention and should be treated immediately.
