Testing for Ketones on Keto Diet
Glucose is a type of sugar that’s usually your body’s major supply of energy. When sugar is low, your body drops into your ketones, which are made from ketogenesis for energy. This backup metabolic process your body switches to is called ketosis. Your liver’s task is to make ketones always anyway, but the amount will change based on one’s carbohydrate and protein intake. The speed of creating ketones slows when it’s simply not needed. With the keto diet, your body does not get enough sugar to use as its own fuel. Your body, therefore, remains in a state of ketosis.
