Meter is fine, strips are obviously overpriced everywhere. Really make sure that you saturate the sensor bit of the strip with your blood otherwise the reading will fail. I used enough blood to make Genghis Khan cringe so that I wouldn't waste 10 bucks.
*Most accurate of the Three testings and very simple to use. *Ketone test strips are insanely expensive. *prick pen works very well and stickers are very thin and sharp, better than many in-hospital ones.
This is a huge help in figuring out what your ketone levels are and how you are doing on carb control. I have already lost 11 pounds. It provides a scientific approach to weight loss , carbohydrate control and sugar control. I urge anyone who has been struggling for many years with weight and sugar problems to buy this kit and start out with frequent measurements to help them on the path to a healthier life.
I got this particular kit because it can do ketone testing. The Precision Xta and/or type of kit were recommended in many of the groups I follow and books I read. I haven't used it regularly yet and I will revise this review in future. What I received: (1) Precision Ultra with case, (1) Easy Touch Lancing Device, (1) Easy Touch Lancing Device Alternative Site Test Cap, (110) Lancets (100 easy comfort in a box & 10 in polybag), (1) Easy Mini Eject Lancing Device, (100) alcohol pads, (10) Ketone testing strips which is exactly as described. I did not realize that there were NO GLUCOSE testing strips - so please be aware you will need to order those separately when you order this kit. Also that Ketone testing strips are costly and usually people test their ketones 1X weekly or less often. All the instruction booklets were included and a log book
This is a key tool to helping you stay in ketosis, and measuring you protein tolerance. Since everyone is different just following someone else's regimen may not work. By testing you blood ketones you can accurately and actively experiment with different foods to see if you can remain in Ketosis and have them in your diet.
Hopefully as more devices come on the market, the price/strip will come down. The cost/strip makeso this product lose a star.
This kit worked great! For those of us just wanting to experiment with a LCHF diet, they include 10 Ketone test strips which is terrific! I'd give this kit 5 stars, and would love it even more if they also included 10 GLUCOSE test strips. Then we could see record both blood Ketones and Glucose, and this kit would be exactly what I needed.
