When I feel like I have strayed off my diet a bit, I check in an hour or so and find almost negligible levels of ketones.Having said that, I do believe the color on the strips is highly linked to the amount of water consumed. A darker color seems to indicate dehydration to some extent, so it's a handy tool to make sure you're sticking to the diet while also staying hydrated!
To summarize, I think this is a good product for the price to give you a Yes/No answer about whether your body is in ketosis or not, I don't set much store by the color levels due to the hydration effects, as mentioned.
I use these sticks on my low carb (Keto) diet after carb days to test if I am back in ketosis or if I was kicked out of ketosis. I do not use these daily or multiple times a day because, as I adapt more successfully to ketosis and hydrate well, the sticks are not as helpful. Not sure of the science behind it though. However, if you use them less frequently, be careful with storage, expiration date and packaging. I didn't close the lid correctly one day and due to humidity, all the strips turned gray. Once they turn, they are no longer useful.
I removed a star due to the title, which is a little misleading. As others have mentioned this is in no way a fully urinalysis and only the most basic way to test ketones.
