How Does Vivoo Measure Ketosis?
The ketogenic, or simply keto, diet is a low-carb, high-fat and moderate-protein diet. A common goal of people on the keto diet is to achieve ketosis, a natural state in which your body burns fat for fuel. However, it can be difficult to determine whether your diet needs adjusting to reach and maintain ketosis. Ketone strips can be used to measure your ketosis level. Using Vivoo is a fast, cheap, and convenient method
If you want to check your day-to-day urine ketone levels, the best times tocheck are in the early morning and/or the late evening after dinner. Vivoo’s urinalysisis a good tool to measure whether you are in ketosis during the first few weeks of going keto. During this time, your body can’t use ketones efficiently for energy soyour body passes them out through the urine. But as you get deeper into ketosis,your body adapts to using them for fuel and becomes more optimized in producingthem, leaving fewer ketones to be excreted in the urine. As a result, if you’ve been in a keto-adapted state for many months, you may get a negative or trace ketone to result in your urinalysis.
