diabetes and ketones, diabetic sick day rules, DKA

Here are some meters that can test for ketones, several of

which can test both for glucose and for ketones in the blood,

usually involving two separate test strips, though there is now

a meter that can give both readings from one test and one test

strip. All the meters listed here are available on prescription,

excluding the analyser and the Libre sensor reader, access to

which may vary according to local CCG decisions.

The FreeStyle range from Abbott

includes three blood glucose and ketone

monitoring systems. These use FreeStyle

Optium Blood Glucose Test Strips as well

as FreeStyle Optium Ketone Test Strips.

Both sets of strips can be used with the

FreeStyle Libre system (the sensor reader

is also a blood test and blood ketone

meter), as well as the FreeStyle Optium

and FreeStyle Optium Neo blood glucose

meters (top, right).

Several meters in Menarini's GlucoMen

range, including the LX PLUS, LX2 and

Area 2K, test for blood glucose and for

ketones using separate test strips. The

blood glucose strips come in packs of 50,

the ketone strips on packs of 10.

Spirit Healthcare's CareSens Dual (centre,

right) is compatible with CareSens PRO

blood glucose test strips and KetoSens

blood ketone test strips. The meter is

Bluetooth enabled and works with a free

SmartLog app (iOS and Android) to enable

users to track trends in blood glucose

readings as well as adding information on

insulin-dosing and carb-counting.

Within GlucoRx's extensive range of

blood test meters, a couple doubletest, able to report

on blood glucose

and blood ketones. The GlucoRx HCT

meter measures blood glucose, blood

ketones as well as levels of Haematocrit, if

needed. GlucoRx's 'HCT Connect' device

specifically for insulin users is a 'three-inone' system is designed for use with the

GlucoRx HCT app, available for free for

iOS or Android smartphones.

Another neat, relatively new metering

system is the Keya Smart (bottom, right).

In one routine test, this meter combines

blood glucose measurement while also

detecting blood ketones whenever they

are present, triggering an on-screen alert

allowing timely action to be taken. Alerts

are colour-coded on screen (green is

good, etc). The 2-in-1 test strip saves a bit

of faffing about with different test strips.

METERS THAT TEST FOR KETONES

Check with your GP for availability of

these meters. For other questions or

support, go to the manufacturer site and

call the careline. They may also be able

to help with advice on accessing these

meters if your GP won't prescribe the

meter you want for you.
