Reagents, Home-Test Kit, Whole Blood, Ketone

Definition : Reagents available as home-test kits that permit the semiquantitative determination of ketones in a sample of whole blood. Ketone determination kits for home use permit patients to check the level of ketones in their blood; increased blood concentration of ketones (ketonemia) is associated with diabetes mellitus, alcohol consumption, frequent vomiting, and/or starvation. Semiquantitative determination of ketones in blood is reportedly more accurate than test methods that use urine specimens.
