NEWS – You’ve probably heard of the popular Keto diet as an aid for losing weight, but did you know that a diet like Keto that is high in fats and low to no carbs can also help people with epilepsy? The Keto diet focuses on keeping your body in ketosis and in order to know if your body is in that state, there are three ways to measure ketones. You can test the blood, urine, or breath. Testing urine is the most cost effective but the results are the least accurate of the three methods. Testing the blood using a meter and test strips is considered the gold standard of ketone testing accuracy, and those who are using the Keto diet as a treatment for epilepsy are typically required to test with blood. One issue with testing the blood for ketones is that tests can run as much as $3 per test. An alternative is the KetoCoach meter and strips which only cost $0.59 cents per test. The KetoCoach meter comes with 10 test strips and is priced at $39.95. You can subscribe to their test strip program which is $29.95 for an additional 50 strips. The subscription doesn’t require a contract and can be canceled at any time. For more info visit KetoCoachx.com.
