A hint about Ketostix

#1
I was reading some really old message threads here last night and saw a useful tip. Unfortunately I can't remember who posted it so I can't give credit where credit is due but I hope the original poster won't mind me posting this as I think it's useful for everyone and it's back on page 200+ lol.

She suggests cutting Ketostix in half lengthways, so that you get double the number from each tub. I've had the scissors out and been chopping already!

No problem Paula. There's some really interesting stuff on some of the old threads. Useful things that I haven't seen posted since I joined here in July so it's all worth a read :)

Ings,

How many did you get for that amount? Boots charged me £5.15 for a box of 50 strips (the pharmacist did have to calculate the amount to charge me on a calculator though - don't know why). I've also had them for around £5 from another chemist chain. I hope you got twice the amount for £9!

I got my sticks yesterday , but i can't do that with mine as by the end of the stick its a small square , so really could now do it . I heard they should be pink when you are in ketos ?

Hi Missleo

You should cut the square in half that you have to wee on - it gives you the same result.

I do it with mine all the time as I always "wee on a stick" when I go to the loo (at home... not at work though!)

Love

Hi Chardonnay
The square is right at the bottom on the end of the stick , so i can't . Just working out how to do the reading , people say it should go pink ? on mine from Lloyds pharmacy and on the tube its got neg traces faible moyen 0.8 1.6 with colours under them , does anyone have the same ?

missleo

you cut them lengthways, so you end up with 2 sticks, both the same length as the original stick but half the width. Each stick has half of that little square on the end of it.

Hope that helps
