    Hi,

    I've been doing low carb for only 2 days and I tested this morning and it was in the middle pinks.

    Would the keto stick change colour if I was just dehydrated and not truly in ketosis?

    Thanks.

    keto stick is just for ketones and not hydration. However the more dehydrated you are in ketosis, the darker it goes. Ideal you should be a pretty pink on CD but if you go into purples it means you are not drinking enough and thats dangerous....you need to flush out the fat and ketones
