Urine test strips

I’ve been doing Keto for about a week now, and I think I’m over the “flu” and everyday I’m hitting my goals and under my carbs! I just started using the urine test strips yesterday and they have a pink color to them as I compare them to the chart in the bottle, but they change color throughout the day. Why is that? And if the color isn’t as dark as I would like, what am I doing wrong? The color is between light and optimal number range. Thanks guys! I just want to make the most of my Keto habits!

  • The strips just give you an idea of what you're flushing out in your urine, at least that's my understanding. If you are showing even a trace you're in ketosis. 

  • I have been using the Nurse Hatty Ketone Strips, and they have helped me to keep on track.  I know that they are not as accurate as a blood test, but they are simple to use and help motivate me to keep my fats about 70% of my daily intake.

    Yes, Savage sticks as my group would call it 


    Whenever you eat or ingest anything your levels will fluctuate.  


    Try testing only mornings or evenings.

  • I test dark after dinner before bed and in the morning it’s always light?!? Not sure why?!?

  • Never test in the morning. 

    Test in the middle of the day and try to test the same time everyday.

  • Karina Thank you Karina - only just purchased today sometime KetoDiastix and did not know when to test. 

  • Karina I know this is an old post, but in case you're still out there! Why not in the morning?
