    I've just come home from work, I'm yet to have my third sachet. I bought some urinalysis sticks home from work, which are able to detect ketones. I did one 'just in case' but it has shown ketones, am I doing something wrong?

    I'm wondering if it's because I'm using the strips I have from work (I'm a nurse), maybe they are more sensitive than the ones that CDC supply?

    Still showing ketones in my urine toaday, a bit stronger too.

    Iv used the ones from the doctors (had them for my lad) and they didnt show ketones till last night and then only a trace, so dont think its that they are over sensitive... worried now about what the other things on the strips are showing :rolleyes:
