Sensors (Basel). 2018 Oct 28;18(11). pii: E3655. doi: 10.3390/s18113655, https://www.mdpi.com/1424-8220/18/11/3655

Abstract: Ketogenic diet (KD; high fat, low carb) is a standard treatment for obesity, neurological diseases (e.g., refractory epilepsy) and a promising method for athletes to improve their endurance performance. Therein, the level of ketosis must be regulated tightly to ensure an effective therapy ... Read more ...

Breath acetone is a reliable indicator of ketosis in adults consuming ketogenic meals

Kathy Musa-Veloso Sergei S Likhodii Stephen C Cunnane

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Volume 76, Issue 1, 1 July 2002, Pages 65–70, https://doi.org/10.1093/ajcn/76.1.65

Conclusions: Breath acetone is as good a predictor of ketosis as is urinary acetoacetate. Breath acetone analysis is noninvasive and can be performed frequently with minimal discomfort to patients. ... Read more ...

Our MISSON

Our mission is to provide a simple, cost effective and painless method to know if your body is in ketosis and the strength of it. With the insight of your level of ketosis you could adjust your actions to increase/maintain your ketosis.

Ketosis is when your insulin levels are low and your liver starts to metabolize fat into ketone energy. When ketones fuel our brain we sense a high mental clarity and energy boost. Without the ability to get into ketosis when glucose and glycogen is low the human man kind would not exist.

Ketosis is not the the same condition as Ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis is is a complication of type 1 diabetes mellitus. It's a life-threatening condition resulting from dangerously high levels of ketones and blood sugar

 

Ketonix® analyze your breath for the ketone named Acetone. Acetone is spontaneously released from the liver when ketone energy is formed.

The more fat that is mobilized into energy, the more Acetone in your breath.

Don't mixup breath ketones with blood ketones. Blood ketones are formed from excess ketone energy and could be converted back into energy at any time. In some situations one could say that they correlate, higher breath ketone level and you might find more blood ketones. Then add that your body could have issues both creating them and use them for energy, these factors makes it harder to interpret blood ketones. This is one of the reasons Ketonix® was invented, to indicate the strength of ketosis.
