The most common cause of ketones in people with diabetes is insulin deficiency, and a build up of this can lead to diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). People with diabetes should check ketone levels when BGLs are high (above 13.3mmol/L) and when you're sick (even if it's just a cold). Currently, blood and urine tests are required for accurate ketone levels, however, the KetoScan Mini is designed to accurately obtain your ketone levels from a simple three-second breath.

This handheld electronic meter measures acetone concentration in your breath up to 99 parts per million, and can be done at home or on the go.
