Ascensia Bayer Ketostix Diagnostic Urine Test Strip
About this deal
We prefer that the urine be collected in a cup and that the strip then be timed and read by two people. The strips provide a fast, convenient way of testing urine for the presence and concentration of acetoacetic acid (ketone). They’re excellent to have on hand for a quick check, and can be good for children – saving on a finger-prick.
Hospitalizations for ketoacidosis are still listed as the number one reason for hospitalizing children in the U. Ascensia, the Ascensia Diabetes Care logo, and Diastix are trademarks and/or registered trademarks of Ascensia Diabetes Care Holdings AG.Similar to Ascencia Diabetes Care’s Diastix , Ketostix changes colour depending on the level of ketones found in your urine.
After the first few days, if all ketone checks have been negative, daily testing of ketones is not needed.Turning off ketone production is the first goal in the treatment of newly diagnosed diabetes managed in the outpatient setting.
